    Ill get a photo of it to compare when i take the wheel back off im pretty sure it was missing on one side or i just missed it. So you dont need to run the auto adjusting cable and associated parts?

    Yip 2 stud patterns but may sort it at some stage but focusing getting the car back on the road first. Not a huge problem though

    Thanks for the info I appreciate it as im still learning all this stuff. Ill pull an axle and see what I have got cheers. It also has finned drums which doesnt seem to be super common? So just to clarify you think since the drum surface is 2.5" wide it should have a 2.5" shoe?

    Question regarding 9inch drum brakes, my impala has a 9inch in it and took a look at the drums on it in the weekend. One shoe on each side had delaminated and were floating in the drum and one side is missing the guide for the adjusting cable so cable is just floating around. Now i have no idea what car the diff was out of so when ordering new shoes does it matter as long as I get the right size or are there variences in the shoes for different models? Second question is the current shoes are 2" wide but drums measure 2.5" is this normal to create tollerance or the wrong shoes have been put in? Was thinking 2.5" shoes in the 2.5" drums might be to tight? 3rd question is there is a bit of grease seeping out into one of the drums how hard are these seals to replace? Cheers Michael
  7. Does anyone know the correct amount to lap valves? I cant find consistant info or is it personal preference? Some i have found lap the entire face others just do a 2-3mm band around the face. Heads are cast iron off a big block chev. Cheers in advance

  13. Thats what I was expecting i might have to do test bits to find out whats wrong a bit annoying but better to find it now i guess. Im guessing its user error not a product issue.
  14. I cleaned mine up with meths as per instructions then wax and grease remover then applied epoxy primer. The epoxy is super easy to chip off / hasn't stuck very well at all so I am thinking I went wrong using the meths. I will try cleaning up using thinners instead next time.
