Rear brake drum - examination and renovation
Braking system / Rear brake drum - examination and renovation


1 Whenever the brake drums are removed, they should be checked for wear and damage. Light scoring of the friction surface is normal but if excessive, the drums must either be renewed as a pair or reground provided that the maximum internal diameter specified is not exceeded.

2 After a high mileage, the drums may become warped and oval. Run-out can be checked with a dial gauge and, if in excess of the maximum amount specified, the drums should be renewed as a pair.

3 The inner oil seal should be checked for condition and if necessary, renewed. Prise out the old seal using a screwdriver (see illustration). Drive the new seal into position so that it is flush with the boss face.
