INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

ef3fd91.gif

  1. Install the parking brake lever (2).
  2. Install the spring washer (3). The concave side of the spring washer should face the parking brake lever.
  3. Install the pin (4).
  4. Install the retaining ring (16).
  5. Install the adjuster pin (12) in the shoe (15) so the pin projects 6.8 to 7.0 mm (0.268 to 0.276 inch) from the side of the shoe web where the adjuster actuator is installed.
  6. Apply brake lubricant or equivalent to the threads of the adjuster screw (14) and inside diameter and face of the socket (7). Adequate lubrication is achieved when there is a continuous bead of lubricant at the open end of the adjuster nut (10) and the socket (7) when the threads are fully engaged.
  7. Install the upper return spring (5).
    • Lay the shoes (1 and 15) on a clean, flat work surface in the position they will be in when installed on the backing plate.
    • The shoe with the parking brake lever goes to the rear of the vehicle.
NOTICE: Do not over-stretch the upper return spring. Damage can occur if it is stretched to more than 204.2 mm (8.04 inches) .

  1. Install the adjusting screw assembly.
  1. Lubricate the shoe pads on the backing plate with a thin coat of white lithium grease.
  2. Install the shoe and lining assemblies (1 and 15).
  3. Install the upper return spring (5).
  4. Install the adjusting screw assembly.
    • Do not damage the wheel cylinder boots.
    • Overlap the bottoms of the shoes so the upper shoe ends clear the wheel cylinder boots.
    • Make sure the upper shoe ends rest on the wheel cylinder piston ends.
    • Do not place the lower shoe web ends under the anchor plate until the lower return spring is installed.
NOTICE: Do not over-stretch the lower return spring. Damage can occur if it is stretched to more than 107.3 mm (4.22 inches) .

  1. Install the lower return spring (6).
    • Bring the ends of the shoe and lining assemblies (1 and 15) together over the anchor plate.
    • Hook the spring ends to the shoe web holes.
    • Spread the lower ends of the shoe and the lining assemblies to clear the anchor plate.
    • Position the shoes against the backing plate and release them.
    • Pull the spring into the groove at the bottom of the anchor plate.
  1. Connect the hold-down pins and the spring assemblies (8).
  2. Install the adjuster actuator (11) over the end of the adjuster pin (12) so the top leg engages the notch in the adjuster screw. NOTICE: Do not over-stretch the actuator spring. Damage can occur if it is stretched to more than 83 mm (3.27 inches) .
  3. Install the actuator spring (13). The free end of the adjuster actuator (11) must engage the notch of the adjuster nut.
  4. Connect the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever (2).
  5. Install the drum. Align the marks made during disassembly.
  6. Adjust the rear brakes.
  7. Install the tire and the wheel. Align the marks made during disassembly.

SOURCE: rear brake pads

try going to the site below here as well as reading this, it's really helpful and informative, it's a nice step by step. braking systems, when it comes to changing the brake pads hasn't really changed much with modern technology, just remember to used the proper tools to compress all the pistons equally, and also if your pistons have that cross going over the top of them then you have to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to turn the piston counterclockwise this will compress the piston.....hope this and the site are helpful....good luck and happy wrench turning!

SOURCE: where doe's that spring go on rear brake drums 1996 chevy truck every thing is at top not at bottom, star wheel adjuster?

there should be several springs. first there are (2) real short springs that hold the shoes to the dust cover/back plate. they go in the center of each shoe. then there is a short spring that goes at the bottom where the adjuster is located. there should be a hole in each shoe. finally there is a long spring that goes at the top where your brake cylinder is and this is what gets attched last after your emergancy brake levers are placed between the shoes .

These codes are for the evaporative emission system.The 455 is the vent solenoid.The 455 is a large leak in the evap.system.The vent solenoid I would replace because they go bad and will not work because they are under the vehicle in the rear of the truck.There is a bulletin for these and the vent valve is installed in another spot.The number for the bulletin is 02-06-04-037E.You should also look for a broken or loose hose or pipe that might have came off.Specially if you ran over something.If none found it could just be the vent solenoid stuck in the venting position.Good luck.

S 10 1997 Chevy Blazer brake locking up


Common cause is the drums and brake shoes need to be replaced. When there no longer within the the specification for the brakes to work properly, the self adjusters will over adjust the brake shoes and you'll have the feeling of the rear drum brakes lock up as the shoes will bind up along the drums. Replace both Shoes and Drums and this can be done on your own will common tools and a simple brake spring tool that you can pick up at Auto Zone or Parts Source and both can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the rear brake system. Good luck and be safe.
