Question about 1983 Jeep CJ7
First time doing brake job on the jeep and i cant find out how to take off the back drum.
With the wheel off, give it good hit between the studs, like you were trying to put it on. Hit one side then the other, the drum will start to rock a bit, then pop off. You may want to put the wheel nuts back on as to avoid hitting the studs. Installing the brake shoes is not that simple, best you do one shoe at a time.If you look close there should be 2 different shoes for each side. Back off the adjuster to get the drum back on, this may take a few trys. Also check the brake drum , it may have a wear ridge that will need to be ground off. Hope this helps! Frankster016
