Default 1968 1300 C

Hello folks. After about 20 years i have rescued my grandfather's old truck from the barn. Its a '68 1300 C with dual rear wheels. I'm afraid when it was parked the parking beak was left on as the rear wheels will not budge. I'm sure it is out of gear and i have tried to take the parking brake off manually. I am stuck here. I have soaked both drums in pb blaster, taken the bolts out of the back of the drum that hold on the brake cylinder and snapped the pins off the rear of the drums that hold the shoes in place. I have hit the drums with a brass hammer but i am afraid to get out bigger hammers for fear of breaking the drums them selves. Any suggestions? I'm pretty stuck on this one. Please see the picture. This is where i am at. Also, once i get it free and taken apart where could i find replacement shoes, springs cylinder and everything for all 4 wheels on this truck? Most of what i have seen does not seem to be compatiable with the 1200, 1300's

Thansk a lot guys.

Yeah, I wouldn't be whacking on the drums with any BFH's. The shoes are rusted to the drums. Its a difficult bond to break. I've had luck in the past by working small, then gradually larger pry tools into the gap between the backing plate and the drum, all the way around. If you had a beefy and and broad enough 3 jaw puller to apply even pulling force against the drum at multiple points, I could see that being effective as well.

I appreciate the help. Pardon the ignorance on this one but it looks like i need to remove the axle, then the hub then the drum as they are being held on in that order. If i used a three prong puller with the center pressure point against the axle then i would be pushing against the entire assembly and not actually applying pressure to pull off the drum. Is that correct?

Thanks again.

You're right. Sorry, it's been awhile since I've dealt with the full floater style. You do have to pull the axle shaft and remove the wheel bearing retainer nut and bearing. Have you also tried backing off the auto adjusters from the backside? If the shoes are truly rust bonded to the drum, this won't help much.

On the adjusters, when adjusting the adjuster with a tool, when you move the tool down it loosens the adjuster, up VsV.
That is the same brake arrangement that is on my 1200c. Careful when leaning on the drums, the stamped drum part will deform easily. BTDT 🤪.

For removal, remove the nuts holding the axle on to the hub, remove the axles. Remove the bearing retaining nuts and bearings. Then you will have a chance to remove the hub/drum assembly.

Hi Fellas,

Thanks in advance.

I finally got it fellas. Thank you all for your help. The evential combination was to take the brake cylinder nut off, break off the pad pins from the back of the housing, remove the axle then bearing nuts put a puller on the hub/drum and pull it off. Then i had the shoes in the drum at working level, pb blaster on the tensioner and loostened it up. Then a few taps to loosten the shoes and the whole thing came apart. Finally! It feels like a turning point on this project. Seems smiple when i write it out but it sure didn't feel simple at the time.
