rear drum Brake Adjusting Screw

Which one goes on the passenger side and which one goes on the drivers side. The big difference between the two is one is a right hand thread the other is a left hand thread. This happens to be in a dana 44 but I am hoping a dana 35 is the same.

I am following this diagram to bad its only the drivers side.

Are you sure they are different. I did my rears a few months ago and I didn't notice that one had a left hand thread but I did do them one at a time.

I though that one had the screw on the left and one had the screw on the right. Put the adjuster lever in and then it is just a matter of putting the adjuster in so that the gear is in the right place.

If you look further down your link pictures you will see a photo of the adjuster. Seems the screw bit has L or R on it !

I know they have 2 different part numbers for left & right. I just ordered and received the adjuster kits for mine. I can check when I get home from work if they are actually threaded differently.

Is there an "L" or "R" stamped on them like the last diagram shows?

i imagine when you try threading one in, it will or won;t go in. that would be a fairly fast way to tell

I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

I've been doing drum brake jobs for nearly 40 years, and I still like to take a digital pic of the old parts in place before removing them, so I know how they go back!

agree, also do one side at a time so you can refer to the side that is together. i always get confused when doing drum brakes....

yep. just did my first ever brake job on my dad's little danger ranger and had a heck of a time getting parts. I got a left adjuster screw kit instead of a right. sucks.

Even the replacement "Duralast" parts are stamped L & R. The left has the backwards threads.
