1968 Pontiac Catalina Drum To Disc Brake Conversion Part 02

Part 2 of N. I don't have the right kind of jack, and I can't afford one right now, so until payday comes around again I'm working on other parts of this project. Today I took off the drums, took apart one of the donor discs so I could clean it up, and had a close encounter with what I believe to be a black widow spider.

How to Remove a STUCK Drum Brake
How to remove a stubborn brake drum, Stuck Brake Drums - Removal, Removing Brake Drums, The "Easy" Way, STUCK DRUM BRAKE? how to get it off!, How to Remove Stubborn Drums Watch how to remove a brake drum that is stuck on. I go through the steps so anyone can remove their drum brake. First try to get it off by wiggling back and forth. Then spray penetrating oil to remove rust between the drum and the seat. Then hit it with a hammer hard. This should free the drum if it is just rusted on. If the drum doesn't come off, then your brakes are probably stuck open preventing the drum from coming off. If this is the case, cut or drill out the holding pins from the back (that hold the shoes in place) and remove the screws to the brake cylinder and then pull the drum off.

GBody 10/12 Bolt Chevy Rear End Big Disc brake upgrade, DO IT YOURSELF (PART 1)
READ DESCRIPTION- This rear end came out of and is going in a GBody Doing this video, first of all, because I can. Second to provide a more descriptive how to on doing a rear disc upgrade for your Chevy 10/12 Bolt rear end. With slight modification to your housing ends, you can put 98-2002 Camaro rear disc brakes on the car, changing the drums. You can also save a ton of money, if you pull decent used parts from a donor car (at the junk yard) and if you catch them on a half off day, you will save even more money. I usually have a setup laying around, but instead of buying them from someone, I encourage you to pull them yourself. You can pull them off the donor vehicle, by taking the rear wheels off (if they are on), removing the rear caliper and pabs (retaining the bolts/hardware). the you will need to pull the axles (which is done the same way I show you in the video). then pull the ebrake/backing plate assembly and all bolts... if you want, pull the ebrake cable too, this may help you modify your vehicle so that the ebrake works properly. I do not know everything, but if you ask any questions, I will share what I do know. What you will need: - donor rear brakes (either new or) from a 09-02 Camaro - longer studs, 10 (at least 2.5" long) and for your vehicles proper knurl diameter - gear oil (and additive, if you have a posi unit) - 3/8 inch drill bit and smaller bit for pilot holes (must be able to drill through steel) - sawzaw, hand saw, grinder, torch, or whatever you can use to cut thick metal - should replace the seals and bearings while you are at it - I normally get new rotors and pads (brake motive has them for crazy cheap) - disc/disc prop valve, or modify your stock, or add adj prop valve to rear line - shock relocation brackets, which can be made from angle iron, misc bolts/nuts Last but not least, you need COMMON SENSE! I may have missed a thing or to in the list but it will be explained in the video. Certain aftermarket 15" wheels may work with this upgrade, but you will more than likely need 16" or larger wheels. Do your research...

How To Replace Drum Brake Shoes (Full) - EricTheCarGuy http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Here is a full length version of a video that I posted some time ago, this way you can watch the entire thing in one sitting instead of switching from one video to the next. If your watching this for the first time I'm aware that sandals are not the best thing to wear when doing auto repair. In addition there IS a jack stand just out of frame in the video I just leave the floor jack in place while I work normally where it is so that it's quicker to let the car down when I'm done. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.
