    Literally the first thing I was taught about doing drum brakes.

    I've seen this many times over the years.
    This would be the correct way IF you were backing up all the time.

    The e brake cable is not on or on the wrong side of the spring

    Your primary shoe is on the rear.

    Also, the right spring is shoved into the wheel cylinder

    My previous boss used to say “funny how you need a license to cut hair but you don’t need one to work on vehicles”

    Good point for all Knuckle draggers to follow.

    Its like doing a wheel alignment by using the tires, if one wheel is OFF the other wheel you are trying to match is going to be OFF …

    Thanks 👍

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Smith says:

    That's a really big shoe!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Botnick says:

    RTFM or at least glance at the pictures. A good mechanic spends a lot of time on the toilet, reading manuals and trade magazines.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Barbara Todd says:

    Noticed my rear brake shoes were not self adjusting Turns out the previous owner put the self adjusters on the wrong side. It adjusted itself so far down it totally ground the teeth from the adjuster

    Sometimes people replace only one shoe…..

    Big shoe doesn't always go on the back. My jeep manual says big shoe on the front 1948 jeep cj2a

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Jadorie says:

    Jeep drivers are truly national treasures.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Little Shop In The Shed says:

    Those Jeep people. Probably paid $600 per side for “extra brake clearance” when off roading!!!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen F. Selden says:

    primary shoe is the short shoe which goes towards the front!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Genop says:

    My Dad always said “Short shoe forward.” Never forgot that.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Max Pasciak says:

    Does this count for the Parking brake pads also?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ToughAncientSpark says:

    Good advice as some of my friends learned in high school. The person who you're copying off of may have the wrong answer!😂😂

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ToughAncientSpark says:

    They switched the brake pads and it still worked? Who'd a thunk??😂

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars julius liles says:

    Remember BOB, big on back.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ChrisTheBmxGuy says:

    Brake shoes are like mullets. Short in the front long in the back 👍

    Tall choir boys stand in the back

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rcdogman duh says:

    Ditto! Got burnt on a Ford Ranger, adjusters wouldn't work as assembled. Left was on the right and right was on the left!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pete Osinga says:

    I like my service manual almost as much as utube

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RJM says:

    I always do one side at a time because I only have one floor jack…

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RJM says:

    I never knew.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars localcrew says:

    I had an ‘86 F350 for many years and probably did rear brakes three or four times. Always had to adjust the brakes on one side as they wore. Finally I decided to stare at the problem until I figured it out. The little adjuster pawl thing wasn’t working on one side because the truck had two adjusters marked “L”. So the pawl was facing out away from the ratchet wheel on the right side. Sometimes ya just gotta stare at it for awhile.

    It’s not Friday yet here 😀 darn kids putting their shoes on backwards 🤣

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Subarukevxt says:
