I just bleed my right rear brake on my 1992 cadillac deville. I just relized that it looks like their is fluid coming out out of the wheel cylinder where the gaskets are. Is this suppose to happen or does this mean that I am going to have to replace the cylinder. I also cant get the drum on either. I can take a picture of the cylinder to show if need be. Thanks.

You have to replace the gasket and also you need to retract the brake shoes

How do you retract the brake shoes. Also how hard is it to replace the gasket. The wheel cylinders are at least 10 years old. Would it be better to replace the cylinder or should I just replace the gasket. Also the wheel cylinder is rusty. Thanks.
