Drum Brakes

Recommended Posts

My question is how do you remove the drum without special tooling...

Back the shoe adjustment and it should slide off...

If the drum should get tighter (or won't move) you know you going the wrong way...

Last trick...

Jack up the truck and put it on block in the rear and block the front axle from roling good... Then pull the tires off. Then take the lug nuts and thread them back on. Not tight mind you... Then start the truck and put in to a forward gear. Get a bit of speed and then mash on the brakes... The rear drums should pop loose. But the lugs will keep it from flying...

I don't like this method but it does work if done right... Becareful!
