Default 332 Rear Brake Drum Removal

The 332 restoration is coming along well.

I tried to pull the rear brake drums off today, and I'm stumped.

I'm making very slow progress with a 3 jaw gear puller, but there's gotta be a better way, At this rate I will have them off in September!!! I haven't used heat for fear of toasting the seals and pads. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

I assume you've loosened the adjustments. Beyond that, lots of penetrating fluid, and gentle use of a hammer to knock the rust loose.

So your saying they slide off just like a car drum?

When I was redoing my 316 I figured I'd look at the brakes just to see what they look like. My drum would not move so I quickly gave up since I never use the brakes anyway.

Guess I've been fortunate, mine have always popped right off! Having a little too much fun adjusting up this latest set on the 2nd transmission. They are sensitive!
