what exactly are they and what do they do? i dunno what one is but i dont think it would be any help to me. if i am wrong let me know. my problem is the drum is being held up by the shoes and the adjuster nut is rusted solid so no backing the shoes off. anyone else ever had this problem, a broken adjuster or something similar maybe?
about the wheel stud, here was the deal. the axle was dropped and and the wheel stud was bent at the base and broke off just above the bend. there was nothing left to beat on to break off. i took a grinder to it today and cut it flush with the hub and used a C-frame press and pressed out what was left.
