    • Use your fingers to unscrew and remove the brake cable adjustment nut.

    • Place a 12 mm combination (or box-end) wrench over the lug nut on the opposite side of the front wheel.

    • Solvents used for cleaning brake hardware are harmful to skin. Always wear gloves when dealing with these chemicals.

    • Thoroughly spray the inside of the brake drum with a brake cleaning solvent.

    • Once the solvent has had a chance to work its magic (10 minutes or so), use a rough-grit sandpaper (100 grit or so) to clean the inner diameter of the drum. Rinse and repeat until you are satisfied with the cleanliness of the drum.

    • Spray all of the brake shoe hardware with the cleaning solvent before taking off the old shoes. This will clean the hardware and prevent any asbestos from flying into your lungs.

    • Be careful with this part, as the brake shoes are under load. It took me a couple of tries (and different methods) to accomplish this properly.

    • Carefully spread apart the round side of the brake shoes and place them through the round bolt on the brake drum assembly.

    • Then, spread apart the flat side of the brake shoes and place them through the flat bolt on the brake drum assembly.

    • The shoes should now be sitting as shown in the second and third pictures.

    • Insert the black rubber boot back on the brake cable.
