    • Thanks for sharing this video. I just bought a 99 Dodge Ram 2500 and it has drum brakes in the rear. The previous owner was very meticulous with the upkeep on the maintenance of the truck. While the breaks don't need work now. This was very helpful. Thanks.

  • You definitely are the best on the internet! The way you explain everything with a lot of essential details, the camera shoot, the editing all makes it very straightforward. Too many guys have a shaky camera, are not prepared, try to explain with their left-hand makes it really annoying to watch. Not you! You are passionate about your subject and are passionate about sharing your knowledge. And it shows in your videos. Looking forward for spring to come and start working on my two cars! Thank you!

  • One side took me 4 hours my first time. Some tips. Insert the wheel brake cylinder rods before you put it in, or you will have to open the bleeder valve to insert the rods. Definitely get the claw pulley tool if doing this job on an older or rusty vehicle. Don’t worry too much about the break shoes lining up early on as the springs will mostly pull them into place when installed correctly. Restarted a few times until I discovered this.

  • @chrisfix, I'm planning to work on my drum brakes on my 95 F250. I'm getting a 5th wheel soon and want to be safe with my family. Do you think it would be better to convert to disc brakes in the rear for towing? Also, would you consider doing a video on towing with a 5th wheel and how to make sure the truck/trailer combo is good to go? I am trying to learn more and I feel like there are so many questions that aren't easy to find answers on out there!

    Colton mohrlandColton mohrlandPrieš 9 dienų
    • Put a wheel cylinder in from a one ton axle and good quality drums with shoes and you’ll be good to go. Drums are great for towing rigs; keep in mind semis use drums all around as drums have much more braking surface than a pad and rotor set up.

  • Chris, this video you did to show people how to change out rear drum brake shoes was EXCELLENT. However, 2 really important things to make sure people really do the most safe and proper job, while replacing drum brakes; "IS TO LET THEM KNOW WHICH IS A PRIMARY AND WHICH IS A SECONDARY. YOU DID SHOW THE SHOES AS; A FRONT AND REAR BUT, THEY REALLY NEED TO KNOW THIS DIFFERENCE. ALSO, WHEN INSTALLING THE MAIN SPRINGS; THAT THEY SHOULD CLOSE THE SPRINGS MOST OF THE WAY, THAT WAY TO INSURE THEY DON'T COME LOOSE OR IN SOME CASES WHERE I'VE HAD PEOPLE BRING ME THEIR VEHICLES BECAUSE THEIR REAR BRAKE SPRINGS CAME DETACHED SOMEHOW. THE PRIMARY SHOE WILL ALWAYS GO IN FRONT AND THE SECONDARY WILL GO IN THE REAR/BACK." WHEN DOING REAR DRUM COMPLETE SHOE REPLACEMENT, IF THEY GET CONFUSED, THEY CAN ALWAYS LOOK AT THE OTHER SIDE. TAKING A PICTURE AS YOU DID WAS VERY GOOD AS WELL AS THE REST OF YOUR VIDEO. GREAT JOB!!!!!! I LIKE YOUR VIDEOS BEST, BECAUSE YOU ARE MORE CALM AND YOUR VOICE IS VERY THROUGH TOO. THANKS FOR THE VIDEO!!!!

  • Drum brakes are the one thing I really don’t like working on. Because one wrong move (which happens to me all the time) and the pop and parts fly everywhere. But it’s not bad because you don’t have to work on them that often. This video really helped, I barely have these things pop anymore. I used to end up dealing with it every time

Even when i was very careful and had the break line spanner it was just impossible... Two days of heating, careful smashing and pliers rolling... ugh :(

    • @ChrisFix But anyway, without you and this video i would never even start with work on cars in our family. My current project is Peugeot 205 which belongs to my mother in law. For sure i will fix her brakes too :-D As usual the simple change of stabilizer mounts and rear shock absorbers on a 30y old car, has evolved in a complete chassis overhaul. Thank you for all your work. Thank you for giving people carriage to do such a stuff them self... BTW: I think you should definitely do a special episode with removing old rusty nuts and bolts including the toughest of them all - the brake lines and bleeder valves.

As well as second generation Toyota pick-ups(84-85). It has always been a Huge passion of mine. I have always wanted to but didn't know a damn thing really.. Was wondering if you'd consider doing a video on adjusting the timing, replacing timing chain guide,, or valve adjustment video. Specifically on the 22r,22re, 22ret, 20r. They are a four cylinder motor. These motor are known for their longevity. Would absolutely love to see a video for that. I'm part of three Toyota pages and people are always asking questions about that. As well as me, lol. Either way, imma watch your next vids!
