Replaced brake shoes and hardware on 2002 Tribute. Cannot get drum to seat evenly back into groove on backing plate. Bottom side sits flush, but top edge over cylinder will not. Any thoughts?

make sure the shoes are the same size as the old ones, make sure the brake cylinders are the same length as the old ones, make sure any brake shoe adjusters are free to turn and set to zero, make sure any hand brake cables are free to slide in their outer housing, and any adjustment is returned to zero,the drum should then fit providing the linings are not over size.

Changed brake shoes and still no brakes

There are a few possibilities for why this is.

1. Wrong size shoes.
2. Excessively worn drum.
3. Didn't adjust self-adjuster wheel out far enough.

People often make the third error since most who change their own brake shoes do not have the drums resurfaced. As a result, there is a ridge on the outer edge of the drum that doesn't get removed. In order to get the drum over the shoes, the shoes must be under-adjusted to allow for the ridge. Then, once the drum is on the shoes aren't tight enough. You can adjust some cars thru a slot in the rear plate behind the drum, but not all.

How will I know when to replace the rear drum shoes? How thin should the shoes be, in order for me to change it?

Your shoes and pads have a tab on them that will begin to squeek previous to the brakes going bad. If you've already heard that squeek and now it's gone, that means the tab has worn off and it's really time for service. I don't know the measurements, but a good service shop will tell you which ones are bad.

Dodge ram 1500 year 2004 i changed spark plugs and now it won't crank

Won't crank or won't start? If all you did was change the plugs, chances are the plug wires got crossed up. You didn't state the size of your engine. On the 5.2 and 5.9 engine the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. If this is not your engine size. Just google the firing order for your engine size.

Emergency brakes will not hold car

Your parking brake cables could be stretched and need adjusting. There is generally a way to do this either by an adjuster on the cables under the car or by pulling the console out and making an adjustment inside the car on the bottom of the lever. This is simply taking the slack out of the cable. If the adjuster is under the car be prepared to go buy another unit at a parts store as it will be too corroded to work with.

Your parking brake cables could be corroded and dragging where they enter the brake drum. This is common and may require new cables or at least a good cleaning. Want to do this along with a change in the brake shoes or pads.

Lastly the brake surface itself could be worn beyond service. So new shoes or pads could be in order. If the rear brakes are pads/discs, often there is a special smaller brake or a mechanical as opposed to a hydraulic activation.

You could have mixed up the order of the spark plug cables causing the firing order to be wrong. What is the exact year, make, model, and engine size of your truck?
