John Deere 60 Brake Replacement

Alan Sorenson I have removed the nut holding the brake drum in place but the drum will not come off. It is being held in place very securely. I have tried to pry it off but without success. Would appreciate any help anyone has to offer.

mike willhite There is a brake adjustment expansion screw on the back side of the brake assembly.
If it will turn, turn it out to loosen the shoe from the brake drum.
If it won't turn, you will have to take the two bolts and one nut off that hold it to the tractor. With the drum nut off push the shaft into the tractor transmission. It should slide back pretty easy, or you may have to put a puller on the drum and push the shaft back into the transmission.
This will allow the entire assembly to come off the tractor where you can get to it, or take it to a machine shop.
The problem is the shoe has worn a grove into the brake drum and will not let the drum come off without backing off on the brake adjustment screw.
