Brake Troubles Eliminated Clutch-Type Lining
Missouri farmer Lonnie Wallace, says he's found a "cure" for problems with dry type disc brakes used on many tractors and combines.
`"The brake lining used on many original equipment brakes is too hard and won't hold. It tends to glaze over. I hire a local clutch rebuilder at Springfield, Mo., to re-line the brake disc with clutch lining instead of brake lining. It works better because it's softer and won't glaze over nearly as bad.
"Once installed, the brake pedal free-travel needs to be set looser for a while till the linings get broken in. If you set the free travel too tight, the brakes could get hot. After 25 to 30 hrs. of use, you can tighten the brake setting up.
"I've used this method to reline brakes on IH 300, 400 and 560 tractors; Case 930 and 1030 tractors; Allis Chalmers D19, 190 and 200 tractors; Deere 45, 55, 95, 4400 and 6600 combines. You can use clutch lining on any machine that doesn't use band or shoe-type brakes."
