SOURCE: toyota brake problem

the prob is still your master cylinder. the seal sounds like its back on its self or there is a wear line that pushes it back, get 1 from a scrapy that works, fit undo the rear nipples and leave to drip for 5 mins . then do the front, look at the rear load compensator some vehicles have a bleed nipple to release trapped air from there, what happens when nipple open and u push pedal.

SOURCE: remove stuck brake drum

you have to get a brake adjusting tool and a screw driver....

put the brake tool in and locate the adjuster wheel, use a screwdriver to release the locking prawl, its tuff but doable.

If there are no access openings to the adjuster, either in the drum or backing plate, then you need to work it off with a few pry bars

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

SOURCE: I removed the rear wheel

the drum should come off, if they are stuck, sometimes a few whacks with a hammer gets them loose, or sometimes you can thread a 8mm bolt in the threaded holes to press them out. just do one side at a time and you can refer to the other side for reference

SOURCE: How do I remove brake drum on 2005 toyota corolla

Under normal circumstances, the drum should slide right off once the wheel is removed.

If you have built up rust holding it on, there are two threaded holes near the center of the drum to aid in removal.
Insert two 12mm bolts into the holes and, while adding plenty of lubricant, turn the bolts in even amounts until they push the drum off.
Be sure to keep them lubed, as they will strip out easily if not.

If you have aftermarket drums without the holes or the screwholes are stripped out, smacking the face of the drum with a dead blow hammer will help free it up, but takes much longer for success.

1987 toyota pickup brake lines need replaced

Best of luck with that. You need a lot of PB or WD40

But honestly, brakes may just be the first of your problems.
Gas lines, mounts, exhaust and of course the frame are all next
I literally had a truck frame break in half
Sometimes its just time, IMHO

How do I remove rear brake drums on 2002 toyota camry

first remove the wheel and this will expose the brake drum. next make sure emergency brake is off. spin drum by hand, if it spins freely you can use a heavy hammer and give it a hard whack and drum should pop loose, if not remove the drum by inserting two bolts into the threaded holes on the drum face and continue driving the two bolts forward evenly which in turn walks drum off. if this was helpful please rate 4 thumbs.

I need a diagram of a rear drum brake assembly on the driver side of a 1987 cadillac fleetwod

The easiest way to get a view is to remove the drum from the passenger side. They both look exactly the same. The only thing that is different is the threads on the star wheel at the bottom. One is left hand thread and one is right hand thread. Hope this helps.
