Brake drum


  1. Examine a drum as far as it is pure. Check wear of a brake surface, having measured its internal diameter.
    • Internal diameter of a brake drum
      • "a": standard: 220 mm (8.66 inches)
    • Wear limit: 222 mm (8.74 inches)
  1. Each time at removal of brake drums it is necessary to clear and check carefully them, whether there are no cracks, notches, deep furrows.
  2. Drum with cracks, notches or grooves
  3. To use a drum with cracks it is unsafe, it is necessary to replace it.
  4. Do not try to weld the burst drum.
  5. Grind all lungs заcечки. Deep or extensive notches will cause superfluous wear of a brake slip therefore it will be necessary to cover a brake surface of a drum again. If brake slips are a little worn-out and the drum has grooves, it is necessary to polish a drum with a thin emery paper, but not to overturn.

When the drum is removed, examine, whether there is no leakage of brake liquid in the wheel cylinder. Eliminate leaks if they are.
