Brake drum - inspection and renewal

1 Whenever a brake drum is removed, brush out the dust, taking care not to inhale any, as it may be injurious to health.

2 Examine the internal friction surface of the drum. If deeply scored, or so worn that the drum has become ridged to the width of the shoes, then both drums must be renewed.

3 Regrinding is not recommended as the internal diameter of the drum will no longer be compatible with the shoe friction material contact diameter.
