Please Help - Removing Rear Brake Drum - 1982 4X4
« on: Oct 26, 2010, 09:48:31 PM »
Hi, can someone please assist.  I'm restoring a 1982 Toyota 4X4.  But, having trouble removing the rear brake drums.

I thought, maybe the emergency brake was stuck on the on position.  But, that does not seem to be the problem.  The wheel turns freely, and emergency cable is loose.

Is there puller (tool) for this?  Any ideas?  Would very much be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Ernest

Mine was a PITA to get off the first time I tried too.  I used a BFH to "coax" the drums off.

there are holes in the the brake drum, put an m8x1.25 bolt in there, and start cranking them evenly

usually, you shouldn't need to do it that way, but it works as a last resort.....

be prepared, you are probably going to need new shoes and drums

you could always adjust down your rear shoes...... through the hole in the backing plate

WAIT do toyotas have those??? lol i have never looked....

if nothing else use a chisel and break the heads off the pins that retain the brake shoes (ones with the PITA springs and the twist cap thingy)
Those are some huge welds!

Thanks!  for all the info.  I will try all above.  I'm not sure what is going on, the truck had been sitting for approximately 7 years outdoors, before my purchasing.   :thumbs:

dont you think it would be easier to just loosen the bleeder and let the pressure bleed off? ya think??

the threaded holes for the m8 bolts is how they are SUPPOSED to be removed.

yep, that wat i did as well. use the 8x1.25 bolt to pry off my drum... but i had to reply the shoe and drum... its always a good idea to replace the spring and cylinder also..

last axle i had was severely abused lol..... i took the brake line off, unbolted the cylinder, and used two 2-3" bolts in the drum and bottomed them out....  the shoes were caught under the wear lip on the rim of the drum ...  when i finally cut the pins holding the shoes on and got it all apart i found the shoes were rusted to the drums lol....

but yes, those holes are there for that reason, and FWIW the bolts that hold the top on a 4runner work awesome for this lol
