The seal on the bearing may be defective...but it could also be brake fluid from a leaky wheel cylinder.
Smell it to check which you have.

Do i have to remove the differential housing cover to remove C - clips or can i just unbolt the hubs and remove both lock nuts on the hub because I want to check my rear brakes on a 65 chevy 3/4 ton...


Hi! sensenicht
Are there bolts on the outer hubs. If so removing the axel hub bolts will allow you to pull the axles. You should be able to remove the lock nut, lock washer and adjusting nut (second nut) to remove rear brake hubs and drums. The C-Clips are only used on the half ton and lighter cars. This is called floating axels.
Its important to replace the hub seals on the inside of the drums. A small amount of axel greese will make your brakes not work properly.

How to remove rear brake drum


Follow the instruction

Chock the front wheels and put your safety glasses on.

Loosen the rear lug nuts with the lug wrench. Jack the rear end off the ground with the floor jack and place the jack stands under the rear frame. Lower the rear end onto the jack stands.

Remove the lug nuts and wheel by hand. Put the catch pan under the brake drum and spray brake clean inside the brake drum from the rear until the drippings are clear.

Loosen the brake shoe adjuster as far as possible with the brake shoe adjuster tool, which you can pick up at your local auto parts store.

Hit the face of the brake drum with the dead blow hammer just above the center of the drum's face. Rotate the drum a quarter turn and hit it again, just above the center of the drum's face. Repeat this twice more and then try to pull the drum off. If the drum does not come off, continue to hit it, rotate it and hit it again until you can pull the drum off the hub.

After aplying E-brake, Left rear wheel is locked up?


The parking brake cable is not releasing, usually due to corrosion within the cable jacket or inside the drum if it has drum rear brakes. Put the rear end up on jack stands and have a helper push and release the parking brake and watch what the cable is doing on both sides. You should be able to see the hang up. If it is inside the brake drum you may want to try a bit of WD40 applied to the cable where it enters the backing plate. Do not go overboard with it as it will collect inside on the drum's braking surface.

Rear brakes locking up with slight touch of brake pedal.


Most of the time with the rear brakes locking up the brake drums are warpped. If you remove the rear brake drums and take them to almost any auto parts store (Napa, Checkers ect.) they will turn the drums for about $10 a piece.

After you have the drums turned you will need to readjust the rear 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
