What bolt thread and size do I need for rear brake drum removal? To use in the two threaded holes 180° from each other on rear drum used for drum removal. The holes are not to hold the drum at all or there would be bolts in the holes! When the tire comes off of this car for the first time, and the drums are about to come off for the first time, and there is no bolts in the holes, what size bolts and thread do I need for the holes?

I gave you an answer to remove the drum that is the most common way mechanics do this sort of stuff. if you want to find the bolts then they will be 8 mm 1.25 or 1.5 thread.

Here is a video to help you remove the drums without a the bolts

Ok this helps, thank you. I'm from Minnesota, so it's quite uncommon for these types of things to work anywhere near this easy. Thanks again!
