1931 Removing front brake backing plates

Post by Shorthaul » July 11th, 2019, 7:21 pm

I'm removing the front backing plates to do some clean up and paint. Do I have to remove brake linings and what is the procedure for removing the unit.

I got the backing plate with removed with the brakes attached. Quite simple really, I just had a mental letdown first time around. Linings look good, drums look good. Just a lot of prepping, re-paint and move on.
