It's a machined part. Does the edge have tool marks on it?

I'd have to say if it is worn, the brake must have been dragging alot. Is there heat or metal to metal damage? Is the band wear area flat? Is there any brake material on the band?

I think making memories like this my main job for my kids. Yeah, ok, feeding, clothing and generally educating them is in there too. My oldest memories are following my dad around doing turns on his little JD in Pennsylvania when I was 2ish. That was back when dirt was new and they had just invented...

I spent a year working for Facebook. I no longer have a 'page' there though. After deleting it, I noticed the sun shining, heard birds chirping and I definitely need to go mow the lawn :P

450C Headless master track pin

I've been looking at breaking the track on my 450C. The parts catalog lists 2 types, a headed type with a retainer clip and a pressed in headless type. I have the headless type and from the stories I've heard, its quite the rodeo to get them out. Some say just burn it and buy a new one. After spendi...

I have a hydraulic gearmatic that came off a gas 1010. It's part of my dad's estate and I'm the executor. Location is iowa, dismounted sitting on a pallet in his old shop. If you have any interest let me know... It's funny, I came her to ask a Q about my 450 and been wondering what to do about that ...
