Brake shoes

Post by dougtappan on Sat Oct 10, 2015 11:52 am

It was brought to my attention by M1 that I had two secondary shoes on one side of the front brakes so I did some digging in the manual to fix my mistake only to find the manual doesn't distinguish between L and R. When you put the back brakes together It appears the PRIMARY shoe is the REAR shoe cause there is only one way for the E brake cables to connect.so on all four corners the PRIMARY shoe is the REAR shoe.Could someone please correct me if I am wrong?

the primary shoes go towards the front of the van,,,and they have the shorter amount of lining on them,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and the fronts are 2 1/2" wide while the rears are only 2" wide,,,,,,,so the question is,,,,,,is that what you got,

Thanks Donnie. the pic in the manual doesn't denote L or R so you don't know which side your looking at. You are the man.
