    I'm working on replacing all my brake shoes on my Scout ('67 Scout 800, four wheel drums). The Binder FAQ here has a "cookbook" method for replacing the brake pads for the front disc brakes, but is there any "cookbook" type document somewhere that explains how to change the brake shoes on drums? Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Just do one side at a time so you have the other for reference if things go wrong.

    Start with the three springs, two on top one at bottom. Remove the self adjuster cable and hardware if so equipped. Remove adjusting star assembly if it hasn't already fallen out when bottom spring removed. Remove shoes by pushing and twisting the cap so it comes off the pin and spring in the center of shoe. Undo parking brake assembly if equipped.

    Assembly is reverse of removal.

    You can do it with pliers, vicegrips and a screwdriver, but the drum brake service kit that is sold at checker or autozone makes it a bit easier and should cost less than 20 bones.

    If you have a digi cam, take pics along the way so you can remember how everything goes, step by step. ---Jan
