Welcome to the forum Chris! If you had posted about a year ago, I could have hooked you up with an owners manual and service manual. I actually advertised them on craigslist along with new blades still in the box and couldn't even give them away much to my astonishment. I just looked over at ebay and nothing jumped out at me but they had several pages of parts. Might wade through over there. I believe that they are strictly large tractor but have you tried http://www.messicks.com/

Great tractors those older John Deere's but holy crap are they getting expensive to keep going if you can even find the parts. It's straight up why I sold mine and bought a Kubota mower. Really like those old Deeres though! Is it a hydrostat? If so, you shouldn't even need brakes if it's remotely flat.

Howdy Chris,

The part number for shoes to fit your tractor's brakes is AM116982. You can find brake shoes and a manual for your tractor on the internet. Ebay has a good selection, new and used.

They're great units that are exceptionally well built although I was stunned to learn that mine had no roller bearings on the front wheels. Only cheap bushings. WTF? Otherwise, tanks!
