Drum Brakes (Front)

When changing out the front pads on my 74 Omega, I decided to get the digital camera and make a little guide to doing Drum Brakes.

I was changing the shoes on the FRONT PASSENGER side of my 74 Omega. The drivers side would be the reverse of all these pictures. I'll be changing the shoes on my nova soon, so I'm hoping to photograph and document both sides and make a complete guide.


I am in NO WAY a professional or a certified Auto Mechanic. I am just a car enthusiast who likes to tinker.

My brakes seem to work just fine ...
