Parking brake Mac Mod for 3000 and 4000 series tractors
I recently replaced the brake band on my 4018, readjusted it several times and now I'm happy with it. I have been using my 4018 on hilly areas and having to bend way over to engage the parking brake so the tractor doesn't run me over while I'm working around it motivated me to do this Mac Mod! The rod is 3/16" threaded with a 10-32 die. The plastic parking brake pin was drilled on my lathe with a #21 bit and tapped to 10-32 thread. Drilled a hole in the center of the black cap. The cap is necessary to keep the brake pin in place.
