Re: brake drum

Sure looks like the drum on my 660.

Remove the axle extension to see the screws that are underneath them (that is if they are still there - they often get left off).

Once the extension is off, the screws are out (they can be a bear), and the brakes are backed off, you can get the drum off with several more than gentle taps with a BFH. Is that what you are trying to do?

it will come out as a unit but it's going to be much lighter with that AXLE SPACER and drum off. your call.

hobo gave you good advise as to what may be hanigng it up.

ps.. that thing on the drum is not a hub.. it's a spacer!

have you tried tapping on it?

this is why many of us told you to remove the drum. less weight to deal with. less mass to move when fidgeting it out.

again. your call.

that's why most of us advised pulling the brake drum and that axle spacer.

it's alot of metal to move.

I wear a back brace now and can't pull entire assemblies like I could a few years ago.

same with hammering.. if you have less mass to move. it moves easier..

just curious.. what's wrong with the axle trumpet anyway..

Good advice to remove the drum it has to be removed from the trumphet anyway yes i have done a little more then tapping on it with a rubber mallet the brake has been released with adjuster and i can turn the drum like i mentioned it about 13/4 inch out from the trumphet still hung up

i hear ya on the half the man thing.

lately i'm wearing a back brace full time and ankle and knee braces.

the drum will hold up good to tapping with a maul. I've found the rubber mallet bounces back and doesn't have enough mass some times.

for good saftey.. get a deadblow hammer.. no bounce.. and it still can have good mass.
