Great video and explanation Darrell. You are spot on in your explanation in regards to the shoes. A few years ago, Qball showed me the same thing and got me using the calipers too

Thanks for thd plug....:D....but I have to give credit where credit is do, Captain Canuck put me onto shoe tool.

Thanks for doing this video. I've struggled with rear brakes. I feel this will clarify and fix my rear brakes for good. :)

Great job Darrell - I noticed that amazon has sold out of that tool now. I think you should be getting a kickback!

Ditto here. I got mine from Zoro Tools -$16.57 plus $5.00 shipping. Looks like the same one to me.

They are in the 750 service videos, but, another colouralalado vid would be great.

I went ahead and ordered one from zoro...I've had drum issues since I got my rig.

Got my hf calipers today :clap:

Wow! That'd be great! Thanks. I need to swap mine to get more life from my tires.

FWIW, I remember reading that folks did not suggest swapping the rims around because it can cause extra wear on the hub? No idea if that is right or not. I did not see this until today, but I just did a brake adjustment al a Coluralado only I didn''t use the tool so I used a tape. I got about 203mm on the hub like in the vid. I know it isn't exact but closer then I was before. Brakes are nice and firm. Oddly, I cannot lock up the tires unless I STAND on the pedal, but it does stop well. There was some oil or grease on the bottom of the shoes and I was out of brake cleaner so I may have to bust it back open. If I do and I remember, I will make a vid.

On the pusher side, the brake springs were hooked from the backside of the show so I was looking at the open end of the hook. On the hack it was the other way around. Does it matter which way they go?

Thanks for the vid! It helped a lot.

How does swapping the wheels affect the hubs?

I thought the spare, pusher, and sidecar wheel were designed to be interchangeable. My T doesn't have a spare, so that is why I thought of swapping the pusher and sidecar wheels.

Well, they are interchangeable. I read a post where someone said (I want to say Gobium, or a thread by him) that hubs kind of wear to fit drive splines. By swapping them it will cause extra wear. I dont know if it is true or not...but here are a threads where it is mentioned.
