Question type: Maintenance & Repair

unable to remove drums is there an adjustment screw that needs to back out

1 Answer


Yes. On the backing plate you'll see an oblong rubber plug. Remove it. You can then use a flat blade screwdriver to turn the starwheel adjuster. This will pull the brake shoes in and you can then pull the drum straight off. HTH. -Jim
