Picture of 10" Drum Brakes

Can someone please take a picture of their driverside and passanger side drum brakes if it not too much of a problem or if someone has some kind of diagram can they please post/ link it. I really cannot figure out what the hell is going on with my drum brakes. They seem to keep sticking. No parking brakes, all new parts, new cylinders too... I'm going NUTS.

Alright, thank you very much.

I wanted to just make sure that I have them set up the same way. Now that I know that I do... what could be causing the rear brakes to overheat?

Parking cable has been removed on each side, all new hardware, wheel cylinders, adjusters, shoes, springs, drums.
Front brakes are brand new... new calipers, mounting brackets, hardware set, pads, and rotors.

When ever I drive, I seem to find my rear brakes really hot. If I touch my fingers on them they are not warm, they actually burn my finger tips.

Sounds like the issues I had with mine. Every winter it seemed I was taking the Ranger into the shop because my parking brake wouldn't work when engaged. The wheel cylinders would seize up and I'd get a drum that would stick and shoes that wouldn't grab.

I finally got sick of it and brought it to the local Ford dealer. Turns out the shop I was taking it too was using the wrong parts....mainly the wrong size drum and e-brake cable. IDIOTS!!! and stupid me for paying for it!!!

Just make sure everything is suppose to be there........especially if all these new parts were installed by someone other then yourself.

I installed it all, I have lost faith in all automotive shops after the last nightmare brake job my father recieved. I'm trouble shooting about 100 bucks of brake parts, haha his brake parts the shop toasted cost almost 1200, plus a day of my labor and cursing XD.

I am using a 10" drum it fits perfectly where it mounts. the 10" Shoes line right up with the old ones.
I'm stumped. I really am.

If the drums are getting hot and over heating, sounds like the shoes are rubbing against the drum. Would backing off the self adjuster star help any?

It is backed off fully... When I put it all together, the shoes just dragged a little bit on each side when the self adjusters were fully backed off...

You don't have a proportioning valve....it's all done by the ABS electronically.

My bet is your ebrake lines are bad. did you replace them?

I just replaced the drums and pads on the rear of mine. They were fully backed off and they dragged for a couple days. I just figured they had to wear in ?

lol seriously? the shoes are rubbing when driving normally, when not applying the brakes. Of course they are suppose to make contact with the drum to stop the truck....

I actually disconnected both cables, I disconnected them from the actuator inside the drum brake. I did this to eliminate them as a componet before I dropped 50 more dollars in cables.

Hmmm, how about the springs. Maybe they aren't letting the shoes return to their spots.

they were new springs. I got the kit of springs from advanced auto parts.

I used the green ones on top, and the yellow on top. Red on bottom.

Tomorrow I will take a picture of both sides and post them. Maybe I really am just looking over a mistake of mine... but to me it all looks right....
