Hi All!

Cant for the life of me remove the rear brake drums.

I dont think the adjuster is the problem. There is no drag on the wheels as I spin them. I beggining to think the drums are really rusted to the hubs!
I cant get any slack when I try to pull the drums.

Any sugestions??

Thanks in advance

spray some rust penetrant on the joint between the drum and hub.

tighten bolts (8mm x 1.25 thread) through the holes in the drum to press it off.

Thanks

The threaded holes are stripped!:disappoin

I took it to a brake place earlier today, and They refused to try and get them off!!!!!!

I sprayed some PB blaster on the joint between the hub and drum and will try it again(pounding on it with a plastic hammer) every afternoon after I drive it back and forth to work!

Anyone else??

Thanks much

Get a heavy hammer and start beating on the drum, between lugs and on the outside edge all around. That and spray penetrante. It will take a while and a lot of beating, and some prying too.

try not to bend your backing plate when prying though. That tends to cause a dragging/grinding sound..

Well,,:) an up-date!

I FINALLY removed the rear drums!!! A week of PB Blaster, and beatin the wholly livin he!! out of em, and they finally gave up.

Rear brakes were like new!!:rolleyes::eek: 143,000 miles!

I cleaned everythin up real; good,, and tapped a couple of existing holes in the drums with Fresh new threads,, for next time!(there was no Phillips head screw holding the drums on)

Thanks all for the help!!

if your rear brakes aren't worn out in 143,000 miles, you might want to adjust the LSPV a little. a little adjustment of it means the rear brakes more, but it's still mostly on the front end to stop the truck. just don't make it so the rear skids !

after i replaced my leaking lspv, i adjusted it on a wet parking lot so that the front locks before it, but only -just- before it. made a good difference at speed, and in the wet. :)

congrats on the completion.

:)
