SOURCE: the brake light on the
There is a level switch in the master cylinder if the fluid level is low it will turn on the light and If you pressure or vacuum bleed the brakes you will center the proporting valve switch that warns of low brake pressure in either Front or rear.
Vacuum bleeding I have found to work the best.
Make sure the Park brake lever is all the way released. If you find this informationn helpful please leave me a favorable rating and by all means contact me if I can be of any further help.

This is a full floating axle. The drum and the hub come off together. The axle must be pulled by removing the bolts or nuts on the hub center.Then the large nuts behind it must be removed. Now the hub and drum assembly can be removed. If you've already done that and the drum still won't come off back off the brake adjuster as far as possible. A ridge of rust sometimes forms inside the lip of the drum that will keep it from sliding off until the shoes are backed off. Very worn shoes can also literally wear grooves into the drum and make it impossible to remove until the adjusters are backed all the way off. If everything is rusted solid and you can't get anything to move check with the owner and, if it's O.K. with him, take the sawsall or the torch and cut the lower part of the backing plate out of your way. Then cut the adjuster in half. Now the drum will come off.
