Hi,

The first set of directions are for drum removal, brake shoe adjustment, and inspection of the drum itself. The second set of directions are for brake shoe replacement. The attached pics correlate with the directions.

Removal

WARNING: Asbestos fiber dust can be present on brake and clutch assemblies and is hazardous to health if inhaled. Brake and clutch assemblies must be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner recommended for use with asbestos fibers, such as a brake/clutch/service vacuum. The bag must be labeled per OSHA instructions, sealed, and the trash hauler notified as to the bag's contents.

WARNING: If a vacuum suitable for asbestos is not available, cleaning must be done wet. If dust generation is still possible, technicians must wear government-approved toxic dust purifying respirators.

The Occupational Safety And Health Act (OSHA) requires areas where asbestos dust generation is possible to be isolated and posted with warning signs. Only technicians performing brake or clutch repair are to be present in the area.

WARNING: To reduce the possibility of uneven braking, always replace rear brake shoes and linings at both ends of an axle.

1. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.

2. CAUTION: Use of a brake drum puller or a torch is not recommended. Brake drum distortion can result.

NOTE: If the brake drum is rusted to the axle shaft pilot diameter, tap the center of the brake drum between the wheel studs.

Remove the brake drum.
1 Remove and discard the spring nut.
2 Pull the brake drum off the axle shaft.

4. Using the Brake Drum Micrometer, measure the brake drum inside diameter.
- Replace the brake drum if the maximum inside diameter exceeds the specification molded on the brake drum.

Installation

1. NOTE: If adjusting the rear brakes, refer to Brake Shoe Adjustment.

2. Follow the removal procedure in reverse order.

No bother. That is why we are here.

I attached the process for adjusting them as well. But, yes you can use a typical brake drum adjustment tool. Let us know what other questions you have on this. Thanks
