1020 brakes not operating correctly

My 1969 1020 has an interesting situation with the brakes. When I apply them with the tractor moving forward, it takes quite a bit of foot pressure to slow down and stop. (The brakes will not slow the tractor down at all if it is in gear and moving forward.) If the tractor is in reverse, they operate perfectly in stopping the tractor. I looked through all the old threads and did not come up with an answer. Any help is appreciated.

just got done trying to bleed the system. The bleed screws were clogged and I cleaned them. Tried using the method suggested in the operator's manual and got nothing from the open bleed screws. Took a look under the footrest at the master cylinder and can see that the pistons are not moving or if they are moving at all, it is imperceptible. I guess it must be time to rebuild the master cylinder? Or is there anything else that i should be looking at?

I have not bled yet, nor tried individually. Will give it a shot and get back.

Have you attempted bleeding brake system to determine if any air is present. Do brakes respond any different if brake pedals or applied individually or simultaneously?

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
