 JD 4300 tractor brakes sticking?

1999 4300 hydrostate trans, tractor has 650 hours on it. When you use the brake or parking brake, they stick. I have tapped the brake arm under the belly back to release them.

any ideas on what caused this? Does this sound like a major repair to get to the brakes ?

Thanks,

It's been my experience that with things like that the problems are usually on the outside of the tractor.

Get underneath the beast and give all the pivot points a good soaking with some type of penetrating oil then work them back and forth a bit.

It's usually just a few years of dust and dirt together with a bit of corrosion causing more friction than the return spring can overcome.

Best of luck.

I agree with Murf. The place I see them stick usually is the brake shaft that goes into the final drive(axle) housing. Unhook the control rod and spray around the shaft, then keep working the brake levers(#1 & #7in the attachment) back and forth until they free up.

Same reason the person above your post said it didnot work for him and did not work for me just now. Either typed in wrong or it is not there any longer.

If freeing the external linkages doesn't do it, the next step is doing the same to the internal ones. There's probably two return springs on each shoe to be replaced.
