    do you have a picture of the rear shoes? THe adjustment is backed out all the way and i need a picture for the 9 inch drum not the 11 inch they are completey different

    The pedal was never pressed, the new cylinder is alittle smaller but the rubber boots on it are a little bigger. The first cylinder was the right bore but it was to big, the second was the same as the original.

Make sure the adjustment is backed out all the way and the shoes are positioned correctly.

    I don't have a picture available. Was the replacement cylinder the same dimensions as the original? Was the brake pedal pushed at all with the drum off? If so, crack the bleeder and push the shoes inward toward each other and then retry to get the drum back on. Good luck and let me know how it works out for you.

I have a 23 t bucket and i cant get a brake pedal.when i bought it had very little brake so i replaced rear shoes and cylinders,front pads and calipers,all new lines and the master cylinder


Once you have bled the air from the brake lines,clamp off the front brake hoses carefully.Does the pedal feel better now?
Then the pad /caliper fit is allowing too much play.Is the pedal the same?Then clamp the rear hose and try the pedal.Is it fine with the rear hose clamped?If so we now know the problem is at the rear brakes.One common low pedal rear brake cause is brake shoes that do not fit the drums.Remove the drums and look at the shoes,are they showing contact wear fully or just in the middle of the shoe?Remove a shoe and place it in the drum.Can you rock the shoe against the drum surface?Once drums have been resurfaced,the shoes will not fit fully against the drum allowing the shoe the flex when applying pressure to it and this can easily create a low soft brake pedal. Of course rear brake adjustment must be correct once brake shoe contact is correct.To correct brake shoe contact,have your shoes re arc-ed to fit resurfaced drums or install new drums.Don't overlook brake master cyl /brake pedal push rod adjustment too.

BRAKKE DRUMS REAR


The springs popped out of place or the adjuster went too wide. OR the wheel cylinders has expanded too far to allow the shoes to retract into place.(Squish them back in).
The shoes may have slid out of alignment,also.
New brake shoes? They are fatter than the old ones. back off the adjuster(Takes 2 screwdrivers)

I have a 2002 ford focus and I cant get the rear drum off the back


IF IT IS DRUM BRAKES,YOU WILL HAVE TO GO BEHIND THE REAR DRUM AND ADJUST THE BRAKES TO ALLOW YOU TO REMOVE DRUM,PROBABLY A SPRING OR A ADJUSTER IS HUNG UP,IF YOU STILL CAN'T YOU WILL HAVE TO PRY THE DRUM OFF WITH A PRY BAR,ONCE YOU HAVE IT OFF REPLACE ALL HARDWARE AND SHOES.

Rear wheel locks up when appling brakes


Hi, check wheel for bad/leaking brake wheel cylinder. An easy way to do this without removing wheel is to look at the outside of the drum from the backside for any brake fluid. If the backside of the drum looks wet, replace wheel cylinder. If it looks dry, remove tire and drum to inspect wheel cylinder for any brake fluid. If rubber boots on end of wheel cylinder appears to be dry, adjust rear brake turning adjusting screw (long bar on bottom with a "star" in center), replace drum, if you cannot put the drum back on easily, back up the screw you turned until the drum goes on easily but without too much slack, start car, apply brake, check drum to see if it can come off easily, if not, repeat until drum is snug, but not tight.
New rear wheel cylinder part avg.: $25-$35 ea.

Rear brake shoes VW lupo 1 ltr


a special tool is required to turn and press the caliper piston at the same time this tool is quite expensive so i sugjest having the pads replaced proffesionally but if you have the time a patience you can try to press the piston in with some slip joint pliers or screw driver while you turn the piston clockwise/ counterclockwise (depending on side) with something else to screw it back into it's bore. best of luck. P.S. many manufacturers are using this style caliper piston now so if your a mr. fix it the special tool is worth buying.

Cant fit drums over pads


You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.

1998 f150xl regular cab brakes grab


I had a similar problem with the front disc brakes .... had to replace the calipers. In high corrosive conditions the pistons on the calipers can become contaminated and not operate smoothly ... they stick. The same thing can happen to the wheel cylinders on the rear. Try replacing the wheel cylinders on the rear (fairly cheep fix) and if that fixes them then the calipers would be next. Jim

Any help would be great.


before you replaced the master cylinder did you bench bleed it? Not sure of your knowledge so I'll explain, whe you replace a master cylinder you need to fill it with brake fluid and push the plunger in and out to get the air out of it this should be done at least half a dozen times before you install it in the vehicle.
