Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX have any ideas on why the drum wont go on with both new shoes? it will go on with both old shoes or one old and one new shoe.
Yes, I believe you do not have the adjuster fully retracted and seated so it is holding the shoes out a little. Study the procedures I posted and install them as shown and I think you will be able to install he drum.
Please let me know how i can help
The fact that I took the adjuster out of the system totally I would think the drum should go on ?
AS long as you have the shoes fully seated in the cylinders and the springs installed you should be able to install the drums if you have the correct shoes>
Please let me know what I can do to help you with this
Oh I forgot to add that I purchased a second set of shoes from a different parts store just to be sure. But I will study the material you gave me and try it again tomorrow. Thanks
OK, I will be here all day tomorrow so let me know what I can do to help. I think you will find the shoes are spread a little in their mounts and that is what is preventing you from installing the drum.
Please let me know how I can help by posting to this thread.
