reaer brake drums..whats the secret?
I was trying last weekend to get the rear brake drums off my ZUk (88.5) to try and unfreeze the E-brake but had no success. I searched this board for clues and found that I am not the only person who has had trouble with this (suprise!). I also found people referring to a couple of 10mm holes to srew bolts in and help pop the drum off.
My rear drums do not seem to have these holes. I took off the four bolts that hold the drum on and pounded the snot out of it with a hammer, but it wouldn't budge. IS there something I am missing? I noticed there are a couple of REALLY rusty screws around the outside edge of where the drum is, maybe these screw into the backing plate or ??? I have never taken the brake drums of anything before, so as usual, I am just guessing.
Can anyone offer a suggestion about getting the drums off so I can stare blankly at what's inside?
