  • Brakes: Help snapped brake adjusting bolt

    I may or may not have snapped the adjusting bolt for the brake shoes on my ‘47 commander was wondering if anyone knew how I could remove it

    It's a continuously rotating thing. How would it have snapped? Was it rusted tight?

      Front or rear?
      Just trying to figure...did it snap while tightening the shoes against the drums, or...?
      Either way, I can't imagine getting it out of there without removing the drum.

        It’s the rear when pulling off the drum the shoe came with and snapped the bolt

          got a picture? If it's like I think it is, i'd take a grinder to the back and take the head off.

            There isn’t a clip I can take out and bang the rest of the bolt out is there?

              Are these the eccentrics like on Avanti? If so, you should be able to tap it out as the nut part just locks it in position.
              Post a picture as Ronnie suggested.
