|Alex McAllister||Hi gang,
I'm the smiling owner of a new (second hand) MF135 tractor that I'm restoring to it's former glory. Need any advice offered on how to fix the "slack" on the brake camshaft where it sits in the axle tube housing. When the brakes are actuated. rather than rotating smoothly in the socket, the rod is pulled forward first (wasting valuable pedal travel) before it begins to rotate...... It looks like the axle tube casting has worn to an oval shape due to the pull-and-then-make rotate action of the brake camshaft. I guess it doesn't help that there is no grease nipple fitted where these parts rub...
Any ideas ??
Thanks in advance,
I suppose you have your brake system restored by now but if not, you will need to pull out the remainder of the bushing from the axle housing (if any remains.) The shaft will have to be replaced or machined 'til it's round again and a new bushing that fits properly to the shaft will need to be installed in the axle housing. If the housing is so worn that it will not hold a new bushing, that will need to be bored and/or filled and bored first. J-B Weld might be a good product for this. Wish you the best!
