how to remove my rear brake drums

Post by clanceman427 on Sun Jun 12, 2016 10:05 pm

Well, it looks like a previous owner might have replaced the original rear brake drums with a pair that do not have the access holes, or lanced areas to knock out the access hole, to adjust the shoes in so I can get the drums off. The backing plates on the rear do not have access slots.

Guess there are several ways to skin this cat, but I'd like to create the least carniage possible in doing so. Anyone ever faced with this?

Could drill a hole in the backing plate where the adjuster would be, so you can insert a flat screwdriver. If not a couple hits with a sledge hammer on the drum should knock it free from the shoes. You can wail pretty hard on the drum without damaging it.
