I just replaced the shoes on a 10 bolt rear with drums, the adjuster is there but there is no access hole. Anyone know how were to adjust them?
Haven't come across that one yet because I had the tranny out to replace the clutch and did the oil change then . Realized when the tranny was out it made some noises I didn't like so had it rebuilt. It's the original M21 4 speed. Also had the shifter mechanism rebuilt. It was not the original muncie shifter it was a hurst which people on SNS recommended I retain .it is probably one of the stupidest things i have seen on this car yet, and there's been alot !
one other great chevy design is having to remove the cross member on the tranny to drain the oil pan.
Hey John ........ you can also "post your pictures "direct on to SNS" ....... (not using the 'attachment' ).Yea I realize that. Just looking for any dumb excuse to post a pic of the tranny.
you could be right, I replaced them the way they were on there, which was probably wrong. Im also missing one drum and the one I have i assume should be for a front drum because it has no ribs. i already left the shop for today, but would you have a pic of how each side should be?Hi just curious about something. The shoes are 2 different lengths the short she goes in the front. A quick look at the pics you put up although not seeing both shoes completely, to me they look backwards. let me know. BTW glad the backing plate holes worked out.
Thanks, this is a great help.I'll switch it out tomorrow!neil63ss is right, primary shoe is the shorter shoe and always goes towards the front of the vehicle. The secondary shoe is the longer one and is always towards the rear of the vehicle. The best way for me to remember is the shoe closest to the adjusting screw star is always the secondary, longer shoe.
