Question 66ss brake vs clutch

i finely got around to replacing the brake on my 1966 sears suburban 10.
Now if i adjust where the brake works the drive belt will not fully disengage and will grind when going into gear. Used new 1/4" thick baler belt for the brake lining.
Anyone have any ideas of what i did wrong...

Re: 66ss brake vs clutch

I think the original lining was about 1/8 of an inch. I do not think you can get enough adjustment for 1/4 inch lining. Either find the correct lining or sand your thinner. Roger

Re: 66ss brake vs clutch

I used an old serpentine belt for brake lining on my SS-12 and its pretty thick (or was when first installed !),I was able to adjust the clutch & brake enough to get them both to behave properly..

This is a manual copy of the Suburbans,scrolling down you'll see the procedure to adjust both right..until I found this online I was ready to give up on getting my tractor to shift without grinding the teeth off the gears!..one adjustment affects the other,both have to right..http://vintagesearsgardentractors.co...tor_manual.pdf

Re: 66ss brake vs clutch

Thank You for the help! it will now go and stop without the gear grinding.

P.S. After doing the adjustments if you find it will not move or kills the motor.
You may need to release the parking brake!
