Default 1929 John Deere D, emergency brake

Should the emergency brake on my 1929 John Deere D hold the tractor and keep it from moving if I try and drive it.
I sometimes find I've been driving with the emergency brake on because I can't feel any difference in the drivability with it on or off.
On a level concrete surface, I can push my tractor around by hand but not with the emergency brake on, this is the only indication I have that it is working at all.

Thanks,
Bruce

Its sort of just a parking brake and since it runs in oil I think the ol D will overcome it easily in gear. I think they should sort of break over to brake, mine I have to hold and I don't have the remote linkage for it that was an option.

My '29 D will also move with the brake on but it is noticeable. It will hold the tractor in place when belted up to something.

I had a '27 D and and a '43 D.
The parking brakes on them weren't worth a rip......

My '27 D brake isn't the best at holding much either. But when completely engaged and it is broke over center, it does hold the tractor when I have it belted up to something. I think that's what they were mainly used for and not braking to slow when moving.

If you can put that brake on when belting up you must be 9 feet tall.
