Hi Guys,
I am hoping this latest back surgery will get me back in action this spring to do some well needed repairs around the farm that I have been neglecting for a long time.
So here is my ?, The last time I put new brake bands on a Farmall H, They never seemed to work well. Nice tight pedal but no stopping, Does anyone know what causes this? Is it the Hub gets to oily or shiny? I almost had a real bad accident with the H with loader last year where several people could have been killed or hurt real bad because I was backing down a small grade and could not stop. I even dropped the bucket but still ran into a telephone pole, Almost knocked or broke the pole angled it real good. So if someone has dealt with this and can tell me what I need to do to get new bands to work well and grab it would be much appropriated.
THANKS JON

Band brakes never work as well in reverse and no, they can't be oily. If yours were oil soaked you will have to clean them up and put new seals in.

No the bands were not oily ,Just wondering if I should remove hubs that are black and smooth and seem to be like oil baked and maybe take a few thousands off, or maybe hit them with a scotch brite on the small angle grinder to etch them up while they are turning on tractor? Or would that not help either.
