Rear wheel and hsg

Simonone 1972 MF 165 Could someone please explain the procedure in removing the rear wheel, axle, planitary to get at the brakes

thanks

Geoff Gane Simonone it a relatively straight forward jod ...first of all drain the gearbox/transmission oil. Place your jack under the axle of the wheel you are going to remove, once it has been removed disconnect the brake rod and then remove the ring of nuts/bolts holding the axle onto the back-end casing leaving one or two undone until you have the tractor securely blocked and the front wheels blocked as well, you will also need to remove the mudwings..decide how you are going to remove the axle housing from the tractor...eg a lifting crane..forklift and sling etc..once you have the axle casing off turn it up on end(resting on the wheel studs on a board or similar to prevent damaging the wheel stud threads), for the left side remove the brake rod adjusting nut ,then the brake rod housing held on with 2 studs, you will then see a large round plate on the top of the housing facing you held on with 2 set screws...remove them and then lever off the plate...that will give you access to your brake discs and the actuator...replace all worn parts and assemble with new gaskets and oil seals...there is no need to remove the hubs unless there is oil leaking from the seal in the axle casing...assembly is the reverse...on the right hand side you have the diff lock pedal to remove...be careful when refitting ...make sure the fork goes into the groove in the diff lock coupler...you will need someone to help you manhandle the axle casings as they are heavy...this is a bare minimum of instructions but it is fairly straight forward and if you are careful you should have few problems. when you refit the brake actuator remember to put the head of the clevis pin that holds the brake rod to.the actuator pointing to the differential because if the brake rod ever brakes to can replace it without removing the axle casing again..once the axles are refitted remember to tighten the drain plugs then refill with oil to the correct mark....to adjust the brakes as a rough guide adjust both pedals to give about 2" free play then drive the tractor and apply the brakes....watch which wheel locks first and then back off the adjustment to equalise the brakes...ie don't tighten the slack side....let the adjustment off on the tight side....I hope this has given you some help but if you need any more please get in touch....good luck...Best regards....Geoff
