Brake Bands

Postby thiggy » Fri Jun 03, 2016 9:51 am

Are the newer toggle type brake bands interchangeable with the older single post ones for better braking on my 1949 Cub?
Since retirement, the things I miss most are the holidays!

no, the hole for the brake rod is to small for the new style band

Hi,
They are different castings for the 2 styles of brakes. Here are pics from TM Tractor.
We have owned Cubs with both styles of brakes, and when they have the proper new brake linings, there is very little difference in the way the brakes work. My opinion. The older style seemed to work good with good lining. Other people have said that on here in the past also.
You also need good seals to keep the oil in the transmission, and final drives, and off of the brakes. :)

I have to agree, the older style work fine as long as everything is in proper working order.
