drums: they won the battle, but i won the war

well, all i can say is that it helps to have the correct wheel cylinder... the one they gave me from advance mounted up fine, but it was physically about a half inch longer than the stock one... the one from o'reilly's was just a rebuilt stock cylinder, so once i got it installed, the drum slid right on...

now, ive bled the brakes, but the pedal is still mushy.... how do i adjust this?

mushy=air. Keep bleeding them. If they pump up, solid pedal adjust out. you sure theres no leaks? good luck

I had to bleed my brakes than drive a few miles then bleed then drive a few more miles and bleed, before I got a hard pedal back.

What I do is leave to drum off and put a big clamp on the brake shoes. This way the pistons are in all the way in and the air has nowhere to "hide". Since the cylinder is on an angle there tends to be air holding up in the upper part of it.
Just my 2 cents
