disconnect back brakes??? 91 pickup

is there anyway to disconnect the back brakes to see if that is my problem. after wrecking the truck it doesnt want to go forward or reverse now. it was working ok after the wreck but now its like the brakes are stuck or something.

Disconnect and cap-off the rubber line that runs from the frame to the "T" on the axle.

You might first want to make sure the parking brake isn't hanging up.

thats what i think may be happening..is there a way to disconnect just the parling brake? and is there a way to tell if motor mounts are broken?

On the backing plate of each rear wheel disconnect the parking brake cable where it connects to the lever.

One way to check for a broken mount is to have someone gun the engine while you watch each mount. You should be able to see if theer is too much travel due to a broken mount (but not always).

Pull the rear wheels and feel the drums. Any gear oil or brake leaks from the rear drums? I would pull the drums and inspect that before messing with the lines.

jack up the rear wheels and put her in neutral. do the wheels turn? mark and pull the 4 bolts on the driveshaft how about now? with it in neutral does the driveshaft turn? make sure you are disassembling the right parts. a wreck can jam the trans as easily as having a rear diff or brake problem.

Also while its jacked up put your transfer case in neautral. I bealive this would disengage and the wheels would turn freely. Also another place you can disconet your brake lines is at the box on the frame on the passenger side above the rear wheel and over a liltle bit. It goes from 2 lines from the front into this box and goes out one down to a tee. Just so you only haft to disconect one line and not two. As im sure you probly know you will loose the fluid and then haft to bleed them bc of air. But good luck sorry bout ur loss
