post-42653-0-84151600-1331263119_thumb.jI finialy got to the brake pads. When I got to the case the pad actualy came off the brake.

(see the picture)

Couple of questions:

1) What can I use to clean the case out with (some "stuff" has fallen inside the caseing) ?

2) I did not find all of the pad. Could this casue an issue ? where could it have gone ?

3) Where can I get a tranmission pump for my TD7E (serial number above) ?

I have a feeling that the pump is now shot. I will be taking it off this week end

Dont know if you have the strainer under your right but that is were your brake pads are. Might not need a pump. Newer models have the pads bolted on.

I find that a shopvac is great for getting out the small stuff that falls behind other parts. Stick a smaller hose that fits your needs into the big hose and used a wadded up rag wrapped around the end of the big hose as a "throttle" to control how much and when suction is applied to the smaller hose.

These lines are from under the floor plates

Steering hoses (sorry not the official names). As you can see a bit dirty (and I did not have a pressure cleaner (yet)

Cleaned the hoses and cover the best I could. Taking the cover off was a challenge. The bolts to the front were a bear to get to. And with out the pressure sprayer, neeedless to say, that is where the stuff kept falling down inside teh casing.

Looks good DennisC. How many threads were exposed on the adjuster? Mine has 4 or so still so I'm hoping I can put it off till the end of summer.

Dennis, thanks for the pictures. Do you have any pictures of the inside area? Any will help me in the future. I am also wondering how many threads were showing on your adjuster bolts. Thanks again.

I had originally cleaned the suction strainer last year. I will do so again when I finish (thanks for reminding me Dirt&Iron

I got my replacements form Broken Tractor.

Threads is what got it I think. Read on the forum that Rocko suggested to ont got past 2 or 3 threads, after I had already gotten the dozer (lession learned).

Left side 1 to 3 threads, Right side 5 or so (can't realy tell, but it is more then 3). Pads look as if they are barley worn.

Wonder if I can get them relined...

1st - How the pad looked when I took the cover off

2nd - What is this big gear called ?

3rd - Alinement points

Next I have to clean the inside, still want to check the pump.

I pulled the real pan, had to use the ATV to pull it out, once I empted out, i could easly turn it over. Going to pull the front pan next. it is packed around the oil pan. Then it will get a good pressure bath before I put it back together.

Running out of time, spring is coming fast here in Ohio

The manual said I should beable to roll he pump easly, after the rebuild. I can, but I have to grab it with a pair of plyers. Hope that sounds right. Going to clean the case on Wed and then start putting the, brakes back in and then button it up. I sure there will be more pictures to follow. :)
