When I apply brakes I get a severe vibration in whole pickup

I would say your problem is still possibly brake related because of your experience with clamping the rear lines. You have changed everything out in the system except the Master Cylinder and the actual brake lines. Never heard of Master Cylinder causing symptoms you describe, but I am only a shade tree mechanic. My only other suggestion would be to verify your rear tires are properly balanced. There is very little weight in the rear of a pickup and unbalanced tire(s) would exhibit the symptom in any car, but most especially in the rear of an unloaded truck. This is a tough one! Keep us posted on your progress in getting this one fixed.

I have a 2001 nissan pathfinder a need to know to remove my rear brake drums

If you can not get them off there could be a couple of problems.First,they could be stuck on the wheel studs.Take a large soft faced hammer and strike the drum at 6,12,9, and 3 o'clock.Repeat this until it starts to move.It may also have a rust ridge to the back of the pads on the drum.This also requires brute force.Good luck. P.S. put the wheel nuts back on to protect the threads as you beat the drum.

Any trick to removing rear brake drum on an 86 Nissan P/U?

Sometimes brake drums will develope a ridge on the edge of the drum from the brake shoes wearing into the drum. There is usually an slotted access hole in the backing plate that you can use a screwdriver or brake tool to adjust the "star" adjuster wheel to allow the shoes to move inboard enough to get the drum off.

Adjust rear brakes 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 4WD

if they are disk brakes, they are not adjustable. if they are drums they should auto adjust. if they are not, then there is a problem that you have to pull the tire, then the drum, to diagnose it. you may have to disassemble the brake shoes and springs, and clean and lube the self adjusters

Rear brake disc replacement

are your brake pads squeezing the rotor? are your brakes disc or drum? in order to replace pads on disc brakes you need to unbolt the caliper. If you have drum brakes make sure your car is secured and make sure your parking brake isn't on...
