Yesterday I finished installing rear brakes w/all new parts: hold down hardware, springs adjusters etc. I reinstalled the original shoes as they had been replaced and still had the manufacturers printing on them. I had a serious struggle to get the shoes into the outer groove of the backing plate where they seat. Installed pins and springs, top springs. To install bottom spring had to slide bottom of shoes in, hook spring, then use adjuster to get shoes back out to where the would seat in the backing plate. Never struggled with drum brakes like these. Question: Could the hardware I ordered by incorrect i.e. too much spring tension? Anyone else encounter problems with reassembling the brakes. Final thought: Also installed new emergency brake cables and loosened them as much as possible. Could the em. brake cable cause the problem. Thanks for any feedback.
