• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Rear Drum Brake Help

Hi all, I recently purchased a 1977 Scout II Traveler. I'm trying to change out the rear brake shoes but when I pulled the drums off the springs were in different spots on each side. I can't find any good pictures of the way it's supposed to look so if anyone could take a few pics for me I would really appreciate it. The springs and the adjuster cable are the areas I need help with. Thanks.

You really want to get a factory service manual from the store here. It has all the pics and info you'll need.

The FSM is indeed a wise investment for long term ownership. For more expedient help, google images search "dana 44 drum brakes" and you will see some good, color pictures of pertinent drum brake assemblies. Spring arrangement and such will often be reversed from one side to the other. Makes sense when you stop and think about it.

I need rear brake HELP on a 1957 IH Metro Van (dully's) or if anyone has a great source. We are rebuilding our whole brake system and managed to get the fronts sourced (through Rock Auto) and put on. Any assistance would be awesome. Thanks Lisa
