I have two formans with the single rear drum brakes. They have both gotten water in them that didn't drain and caused serious problems. I'd rather replace brake shoes than everything from the axle housing outward. I'm thinking of running them with the drain plug out (or at least drill a hole in it) since water always seems to get in but not out. thoughts?? thanks.

Yeah, that's how I do mine, because there's no way you can keep mud and water out. It's better that it drain out than stay in there.

That is what we did with the drum brakes on my old bikes when I raced them.

Should be fine like that.
