    The shoes could be realigned with the axle and all will be normal. No need to take anything apart just tap both shoes down a bit.

    Ah, so they need to slide down in order to be in the right place? Ill try that.

    Your shoes don't appear to be concentric with the axle. Try slipping the drum on, then sliding it off and see if things look better.

    59 Lark: Rear brakes dont look right.

    Hi everyone-
    Im replacing my rear wheel cylinders, and during the process of getting everything put back together, I noticed that the push rods dont look to be sitting correctly. The pushrods appear to be angled up instead of going straight across.
    I didnt replace the shoes, and was planning on just putting the old ones back in, since they dont look bad. But Im wondering if I have the wrong shoes, which is what is causing the pushrods to mis-algin.

    Below are photos of how it looks now that I have put it back together. I also took photos before I took it apart, and it looks like they were angled up like that before. Which leads me to believe that I didnt mis-align something during my rebuild.

    Anyone have any recommendations? Am I doing something wrong?


    Thanks in advance.
    Craig
