    Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder Upgrade


    I changed my rear wheel cylinders out yesterday since I had the day off for school. Since I had the camera on hand I snapped some shots to let other members see how easy it since. I bet there are a few people that have read about these and thought, "that might be too hard for me" when in fact it couldn't be farther from the truth.

    You will need at least the following:

    • 10 mm tubing wrench
    • brake tool
    • Hammers (small and large)
    • slip pliers
    • 3/8" ratchet with 1/2" socket and 3" ext.

    Here they are (angelic music playing softly as I stare at them) Napa 37337 one tone wheel cylinders. They cost 8.97 a piece and like a fine Italian sports car, "Made in Italy"

    First, remove wheel, this was easy,but I don't live in the rust belt

    Second, remove drum


    Third, you only have to remove the forward spring to get the wheel cylinder out

    I didn't get a picture of the removal of the wheel cylinder, pretty easy two 1/2" bolts and she comes right out.

    Fourth, compare the two and they are dimensional close
