Re: Back brake woes ( Share Yours )
Biggest issue I seem to have with shoes is getting that little washer onto the pin while compressing the springs.
Like circlip firing, it is a depressing sport hunting around the drive for the little bu66ers.
Then the trial and error bit setting the ratchet on the auto adjust, always a bit of a pain.
IIRC, handbrake pads on a Jag IRS rear axle were awkward, more from their inboard position then anything else.
Winding back calipers can be a PITA but never invested in a proper wind back tool so my own fault
