I still can't get the dang rear brake drum off my atv. I have everything tore down per the Clymer repair manual. It moves about a half an inch, and then stops. Is it hitting on the pads, or what/

Thanks,
-Kyle

Did you adjust the shoes in to clear the drum?

No, I don't see how to do that. I have the hand and foot cable disconnected from the pivot arm. Should I be able to put in in the middle, so the pads are not touching the drum?

Thanks,

No. The adjuster and springs will keep the shoes in their present position.

There is a plastic plug on the back of the brake panel. Pull that plug out and you will see (with a flashlight) a star type adjuster.
Just like the drums brakes on cars. Crank it in until the drum will slip off.

As old as this quad is, the adjuster could well be rusted up. Might need a good penetrating oil to help break it loose.

Rear brakes wood not the front. :wink: If the brake cam/arm is in the neutral position you can slightly tap the shoes towards the brake panel and pull the drum a little at a time. Don't be afraid of tapping on the drum lightly, sometimes it takes the shock of a hammer to get it moving.

toodeep,

Tapping on the pads with a blunt punch through the drum holes did the trick! Thanks for the help!
