how do you remove the rear shoes? I've never seen a center pin design like this before.

Remove wheel assembly and drum. Place a wheel cylinder clamp over ends of wheel cylinder. Disengage adjusting lever from adjusting screw by pulling backwards on lever cable.

Move outboard side of adjusting screw upward, and back off pivot nut as far as possible. Pull adjusting lever, cable and adjusting spring down and toward rear to unhook pivot hook from large hole in secondary shoe. DO NOT pry pivot hook from hole.

Remove adjusting spring and adjusting lever. Remove secondary shoe-to-anchor spring. Remove primary shoe-to-anchor spring. Unhook cable anchor, and remove anchor pin plate.

Remove cable guide, shoe hold-down springs, brake shoes, adjusting screw, pivot nut and socket. Remove parking brake link spring and link. Note color and position of springs for reassembly.

Disconnect parking brake cable from lever. Remove secondary shoe. Disassemble parking brake lever from shoe by removing lever retainer and spring washer.

Ford has used this system for many years
