Front Drum Brake Question
Hi all, new user here. I recently purchased a '67 Buick Wildcat. As it had sat for a while, the the seals in the front wheel cylinders loose pressure when the brake is applied. In fact, if I don't rapidly depress the brake pedal, the brakes don't work at all.
So, I bought kits to redo the front wheels, but I can't get the drum off???
I have turned the adjuster wheel all the way in and beat, hammered, and pried on the drum... all to no avail. What am I missing? Is there a keeper screw somewhere???
Someone told me I had to pull the whole hub assembly, but that doesn't make sense(I don't think).
I have changed drum brakes before, but It was years ago. Perhaps, I have forgot something?
I am not a professional mechanic(obviously), but I know my way around cars... especially, GM product.
Any ideals would be much appreciated.
