Post Drum brakes diagram/pic's 
In my haste to get this thing pulled apart....I neglected to take pic's.
Anyone got an exploded diagram or pic's of the brake assembly so I can put it all back together correctly.

I don't but you could pull a drum off your other rear end. I don't see why they wouldn't be the same.

Yeah....thought of that.
That's probably what I'll end up doing.

First series from a 1997 7.2K-GVWR Suburban (12 bolt). Second my 1996 8.6K-GVWR Suburban (14 bolt).









My 1996 K3500 Sub's rear brakes














A Ford pickup's front rotors, or what is left of them...

Thanks Ben.
The more pic's the better.
I'll take pic's of mine putting it back together so no one else has these issues.
Wow! That F___ F___......that other front rotor must keep nice and cool with so little surface area and so much room for ventilation of the disc.
Never seen one of that design before. Must be new and innovative! Lol! Laughing


What ele are you going to do at work?
Lol!

Howard there is nothing wrong with drum brakes as long as they stay adjusted. It's true they don't expel heat as well as
disc brakes, when I worked at the race shop we drilled as many wholes in the backing plate as we could without weakening
it and if necessary add a cooling duct. This was because the rule book required drum brakes.

Remembered I'd taken a heap of pic's of the brake setup of my 10 bolt when I did the Trutrac installation.
Both look the same.

Right!


Left!


One thing I did notice with this 14bolt setup. There's a bar that goes between the shoes which I would think should be left and right specific. Both are the same in the 14bolt. So...either the factory ran out of the RH side units that day....or...????

I've heard of drilling the drum itself too... Helps with cooling/gassing and water expelling?

Those look so much stronger than the drums I have on my 5 lug. The 5 lug drums, and weak rear end for that matter, have absolutely no business in a full size pickup. The springs are heavier, the star has more teeth on it, the two springs at the top provide much better stability. Those are badass Howard. I definitely need a rear end swap.

Arrived at home, removed drive-shaft, changed U-joint, reinstall everything.... Back on the road heading back to work... it's Friday, major traffic... Arrived at work in time to type this and sign out... no work hours lost! Razz Laughing

Had to work today (another public holiday) so I got some more done.
Machinist finished off the sight glass unit so I tacked it into place and I'll get a 'real' welder to weld it in on Monday.
I'll get a couple of stainless allen key type plugs instead of the brass stops.

Oh, thats what that is...a sight glass !

Careful off roading and if you do, hope it is made of polycarb

The sight glasses I've used on gear boxes had some leak. They weren't
like yours and mention as a just in case to make sure the gasket
and sealer is done well.

Also, if running synthetic, there is a reaction with silicone RTVs that
cause leaks with the axle seals. Don't know why, but make sure
to use non-silicone sealer.

Is that stainless or alu? Assume stainless, so weldable. If alu, then
braze, right?

Going to have a magnet in the drain plug?
