7117 Hydro Brake Service

Recommended Posts

Has anyone out there replaced a brake lining on a 7100 series hydro? Does one replace the lining (p/n 172237) on the brake band or replace the whole brake band assembly (p/n 172234)? My foot brake adjustment is maxed out and the parking brake does not hold very well any longer. I see some lining left, but it could be riding on the rivits or the lining could be cooked.

We replace the liniing if the band is good. We happen to have an old foot press riviter. You will need to use a punch or short piece of bolt in a vise to support the rivet head while you roll it. Best bet would be to take it to an old automotive shop that might have an old rivet press around. It isn't that difficult if you have a rivet set tool and anvil. I don't know where you would buy one now, but years ago almost every Western Auto etc sold them. If you anybody that is a machinest, he can make you a roll tool in a lathe in about 15 minutes. The key is that the rivet must be rolled not just flattened. Good luck AL

Thanx Al.
I have access to an old foot press rivet machine at work (a Stimpson machine I think). I assume Simplicity used tubular (hollow) rivets for these linings. Do you happen to know what size the rivets are? I think the machine at work is set up for 1/8" or 1/16" rivets and I am not sure we have tooling for other size rivets.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
