Question about Cars & Trucks
Took rear break lines loose and im not getting any fluid threw the lines
I assume you have a full master cylinder.
Try taking one rear line off and pumping the brake with the cap on the master cylinder.
Pump it a few times all the way to the floor and see what happens.
If there is still nothing coming out, get a helper to put a wet finger tip over the open line and see if there is any vacuum (sucking in) while you are pumping the brake.
I didn't mention it, but I assume you already checked to see if there are any sharp bends or kinks in the lines going back.
You can always go to brake check for a brake flush.
They charge about 25-35 for this and they use a power bleeder that will force fluid thru the lines.
They then make all adjustments to the brakes.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: break drum
they just slide off, if it doesn't it is rusted to the axle face, use a large shot filled hammer and WD 40 and hit around the axle lugs until it breaks free, you may also need to back of the brake shoes using the adjuster at the bottom of backing plate, oval hole, u will need a "brake spoon tool" to do this.

if its the first time there being taken off some times there are locks around the lugs that the company puts on to hold the drums in place while on the line there are two or three of them you must take them off first.
