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

How do you pull axle on 1978 jeep cj7


Front or rear? Rear I'm going to assume you spun a hub.First wheel, brake drum,mounting bolts that hold the axle to the rear end, all come off. Then you take a slide hammer to remove the axle from the housing. Sometimes the will simply fall out (not very often).Rmember to replace the bearing race in the housing. And torque the nut on the new setup to what the instuctions say. Remeber you are cutting threads into the axle as you tighten it up. The tighter the better. Hope this helps.

I have a 1984 jeep CJ7 that has been sitting for 5 years. I finally had it started and the engine sounds great, but now it doesn't- the jeep-move. I can also just shift the gears without having to depress...

Need to get the rear drums off to fix the brakes.. How beside taking the nut off.. does it take a puller? Thanks


try backing the brake adjuster of it is located inside the drum but there should be a plug that can be removed on the back side of the drum or backing plate. look inside with flashlight and there will be a small wheel with teeth on it. move it one way or the other with a flat screwdrive to loosen the brakes then the drums should come off

I can get running lights but then my brake lights dont work then i can get brake lights then no running lights i have three wires orange,brown and white its on an 1983 jeep cj7


I think I found the problem, part of the high beam switch was burned, resulting in a loose connection. When I connected the loose wires, the lights worked. My guess is, the wire burned is the relay wire to go from low to high. I am going to replace the switch, hopefully this will solve the problem, I think it will.
