The brakes are all rusted to heck. It looks like the springs are still free, but the racheting self-adjusters are stuck. All of the pivot points are sticky, to say the least. The cylinders and drums themselves looked okay. For the time being, I just emptied/brushed a ton of brake dust out of them. I'll wait to mess with them any more until I know what the heck i'm doing.
I really need to get me a service manual.
I had a hard time getting the second drum past the linings. I couldn't find any hole or star-wheel to turn to disengage the pads. Did I just miss it, or could I not have one?
As for the sound, I think I may have found it. Either that or another issue altogether. I think I might have a wheel bearing going out, passenger side rear. I'll do another post on that one though.
