What's the best way to remove the brake drum? I removed the cotter pin and king nut but it doesn't want to pull off. Any suggestions?
I really should read replies first... You bet me to it hahaGot a soft brass or a heavy plastic hammer? Back all 4 of the brake adjusters out, thread the castle nut back onto the axle until the head of the nut is even with the end of the axle. Then whack the end of the axle shaft squarely. You should now be able to pull the drum off. If not, you should feel more endplay when you pull on the drum... pull it out and then whack the end of the axle again. By now you should be a winner...
Previous owner was in middle of "restoring".look at how clean that is, ha
I was thinking welding up a jig that is held on by two lug nuts and then using the slide hammer. As far as I understand the lug studs come out with the drum, right?Slide hammer if all else fails.
How many brake shoe adjustors are there? I've for sure moved one.Yeah, will it not move at all ?
I have found the adjustors. Working on rotating them now
It does spin free. There is an occasional clunk part of the reason I want to get in there. How much do I need to have them off?Are sure your backing them off ? Does the wheel spin free ?
