1994 c2500 rear drum removal problems


Hi,

Improve the Fixya.com experience for everyone by voting!


The information set forth below is the approach used in our shop.

There is a high probability that one of the conditions set forth below is causing your drum to bind as you try to remove it. The simplest solution is to use your brake spoon develop the maximum amount of spacing between the brake shoe and the drum.

If that doesn't work, on occasion we've had to use a chisel or a cutting torch to remove the drum. It is very seldom that such drastic measures must be taken but it has happened.

Surface/Heat Checks/Cracked Drum/Out-Of-Round Drum Brake drums act as a heat sink. They absorb heat and dissipate it into the air. As drums wear from normal use or are machined, their cooling surface area is reduced and their operating temperatures increase. Structural strength also reduces. This leads to overdistortion, which causes some of the drum conditions covered here.

Scored Drum Surface
A scored drum surface shows a scored drum surface. The most common cause of this condition is buildup of brake dust and dirt between the brake lining and drum. A glazed brake lining, hardened by high heat or in some cases by very hard inferior grade brake lining, can also groove the drum surface. Excessive lining wear that exposes the rivet head or shoe steel will score the drum surface. If the grooves are not too deep, the drum can be turned.
f45-17.gif Example of a scored brake drum. Courtesy of Wagner Brake Products. Bell-mouthed Drum
Bell-mouthed drum shows a distortion due to extreme heat and braking pressure. It occurs mostly on wide drums and is caused by poor support at the outside of the drum. Full drum-to-lining contact cannot be achieved and fading can be expected. Drums must be turned.
f45-18.gif Example of a bell-mouhed brake drum. Courtesy of Wagner Brake Products.

Concave Drum
A concave drum exhibits an excessive wear pattern in the center area of the drum brake surface. Extreme braking pressure can distort the shoe platform so braking pressure is concentrated at the center of the drum.
f45-19.gif Examples of concave and convex brake drums. Courtesy of Wagner Brake Products.

Convex Drum
A convex drum exhibits excessive wear at the closed end of the drum. It is the result of excessive heat or an oversized drum, which allows the open end of the drum to distort.

Hard Spots On The Drum
This condition in the cast-iron surface, sometimes called chisel spots or islands of steel, results from a change in metallurgy caused by braking heat. Chatter, pulling, rapid wear, hard pedal, and noise occur. These spots can be removed by grinding. However, only the raised surfaces are removed, and they can reappear when heat is applied. The drum must be replaced.

Threaded Drum Surface
An extremely sharp or chipped tool bit or a lathe that turns too fast can result in a threaded drum surface. This condition can cause a snapping sound during brake application as the shoes ride outward on the thread, then snap back. To avoid this, recondition drums using a rounded tool and proper lathe speed. Check the edge of the drum surface around the mounting flange side for tool marks indicating a previous rebore. If the drum has been rebored, it might have worn too thin for use. Check the diameter.

Heat Checks
Heat checks are visible, unlike hard spots that do not appear until the machining of the drum. Extreme operating temperatures are the major cause. The drum might also show a bluish/gold tint, which is a sign of high temperatures. Hardened carbide lathe bits or special grinding attachments are available through lathe manufacturers to service these conditions. Excessive damage by heat checks or hard spots requires drum replacement.
f45-20.gif Example of a heat checked and over-heated brake drum. Courtesy of Wagner Brake Products.

Cracked Drum
Cracks in the cast-iron drum are caused by excessive stress. They can be anywhere but usually are in the vicinity of the bolt circle or at the outside of the flange. Fine cracks in the drums are often hard to see and, unfortunately, often do not show up until after machining. Nevertheless, should any cracks appear, no matter how small, the drum must be replaced.

Out-Of-Round Drum
Drums with eccentric distortion might appear fine to the eye but can cause pulling, grabbing, and pedal vibration or pulsation. An out-of-round or egg-shaped condition is often caused by heating and cooling during normal brake operation. Out-of-round drums can be detected before the drum is removed by adjusting the brake to a light drag and feeling the rotation of the drum by hand. After removing the drum, gauge it to determine the amount of eccentric distortion. Drums with this defect should be machined or replaced.
f45-21.gif Measure the inside diameter of the drum in several spots to determine out-of-roundness.

An out of round or tapered drum prevents accurate brake shoe adjustment prevents not only difficult removal but also can cause excessive wear of other brake parts; excessive tire wear; and, a pulsating brake pedal.

All the best

here is a diagram on how to remove your brake drum. please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya today.

Removal & Installation
CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

    CAUTION Use of a brake drum puller or a torch is not recommended. Brake drum distortion can result.

    NOTE If the brake drum is rusted to the axle shaft pilot diameter, tap the center of the brake drum between the wheel studs.
  3. Remove the brake drum.
  4. If equipped, remove the brake drum retaining clips.
  5. If the brake drums will not come off, follow these steps.
  6. Move the brake shoe adjusting lever off the brake adjuster screw.
  7. Loosen the brake shoe adjuster screw nut by adjusting the nut upward.
  8. Using the special tool, 134-R0191, measure the brake drum inside diameter.
  9. Install a new brake drum if the maximum inside diameter exceeds the specification shown on the outside of the brake drum.

To install:

WARNING Whenever a wheel is installed, always remove any corrosion, dirt or foreign material present on the mounting surfaces of the wheel or the surface of the wheel hub, brake drum or brake disc that contacts the wheel. Installing wheels without correct metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel to come off while the vehicle is in motion, causing loss of control. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

  1. Clean the wheel hub mounting surface and wheel pilot.
  2. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and remove the wheel.
  3. Mark the relationship of the drum to the hub and pull the drum from the brake assembly.

If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.
To install:
  1. Align the mark on the drum to mark on hub and install drum
  2. Align the mark on the wheel to mark on drum and install wheel
  3. Adjust brake lining as needed. Pump brakes

REAR BRAKES


i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
