Ayuh,... The springs, Should collapse the pistons into the wheel cylinder,...You know, I simply can't get over, why springs do not pull shoes back along with pistons. Maybe pistons got crooked inside the bore? They are just flat rather small pags, might be the case.
Ayuh,.... Even though those are known as "Self-adjusting",....You guys are too much! Thanks for coming to the rescue so fast! Yes, Im dealing with drums, not discs, but got it done! What complicated it was the pin(?) keeping apart the shoes, which poped out of the "slot", eventually, pryed it back in, and then, going on Joe's advice, as well as others, finally squeezed the shoes back about, ohhh, 2-3 mm, thats all it took. Man, now i leant.
Onto bleeding, now.......
But, I believe I missed a step. Wasnt I supposed to depress brake pedal a few times to "set" the shoes again, THEN test for clearance? If the wheel spins freely, doesnt thaT mean it isnt binding and no adjustment necessary?
it mentions the startadjuster is an "automatically" adjusting device, right?
Ayuh,... With the wheel jacked up, spin the wheel,...If the wheel spins freely, doesnt thaT mean it isnt binding and no adjustment necessary?
