Break pedal removal.

Evening all, the time has come to replace the awful foot plates on the 780. Looks like they have to drop down with the pedals and cross shaft?

My question is how do you remove the pedals from the shaft? Mine were seized so I have had gas and bars on them to free them up.

Any suggestions more than welcome as always. I think I’ll start a “restoration” thread to keep everyone in the loop.

I have a 990 that had one of the brake pedals seized to the shaft many years ago, I ended up cutting part of the right foot rest to get the pedal off, Unfortunately I don't remember all the details but I did get a fairly good looking weld when putting it back together that you can still see if you look close. I think I added one or 2 grease fittings when I had it apart and have had no problems since. There are lots of different manuals but it seems kind of hit or miss as to how well they cover specific things. Sorry I do not have any info on the 780 but perhaps food for thought anyway.

Thanks for this.

I have yet to have a proper look under the tractor.

Looking at the online parts catalogue it shows a circlip. I will have a look in person and report back

i have just done mine on an 880, sadly there is no corners to cut, soak in diesel, or mollass, use heat and tap whilst warm to ease pedals clean up with sander and emery cloth and refit!

Joe thanks for this.

Do they have pins holding them in that need to be removed first?

Did you have to remove any snap washers or circlip?

there is a circlip on the brake pedal side,brake pedal nearest to the gearbox has a bolt through it or cellock pin but every thing will be seized and will need heat, have fun!

Thanks for that.

I’ve got Oxy, it took an age to get them free from each other.

I did have a look yesterday but can’t see the circlip. Will post a pic after. H

Break pedals have now been removed along with the foot plates.

What an almighty job it was to get those drift pins / roll pins out!

All done and dusted. Thanks for your help gents. My aim is to get a topic started in the restoration section.
