To remove the wheel cylinder, jack up the vehicle and remove the wheel, hub, and drum.

Remove the brake shoe assemblies

Remove the brake shoes and the brake line, then remove the bolts and tilt the cylinder inwards


then lift it up and off of the backing plate


Disconnect the brake line at the fitting on the brake backing plate.

Remove the screws that hold the wheel cylinder to the backing plate and remove the wheel cylinder from the vehicle.

Installation is the reverse of the above removal procedure. After installation bleed and adjust the brakes as described earlier in this Section.

If you can take pictures as you disassemble so you can review them if any problems occur while reassembling.

if its been in there for a while its gonna be kinda tough to get it off the backing plate. AND don't strip the brake line bolt... they can be kinda tough to get off, so just make sure you get the correct size wrench otherwise you'll be sorry.
