Don't really know how to be nice about this but here I go.
For all of you young fellows. From us old F@#$&, there was a tool to
remove the rear brake drums very easy. I will give you the name of the
Co. that made it and the part number. I am sure that some else made it.
This was back in the 50's, when I bought it. K-D Mfg Co. No 284 .
There were two of them in a set. You put them in the two round holes in
the brake durm and it would pull the drum off, yery easy.
I still have them and they sure help me in my restoration.
