Default Wheel cylinder

Driver rear wheel is leaking brake fluid .

I have it apart , an it looks like it is the wheel cylinder. I have searched "wheel cylinder" an come up with nothing.

It looks fairly straigh forward for how to get the wheel cylinder out , BUT the I am unsure of how to do the rest of the brake drum ..

Any help would be great.

Been awhile for me but if my memory serves me right, spring pulls the shoes together putting pressure on both sides of the adjusting wheel and keeps everything together. A third hand or the right tools help a lot. Actually, a third hand would probably get in the way so go with the right tools. They are specially made to pull the spring from one shoe to the other and let it slip into the slot that holds the hook.

Thanks , everything is together as it was when I took it apart , just the lever keeps sleeping off of the "wheel". I hadn't touched the passenger side so I made the driver side exactly like the pass. an the lever keeps slipping out of the "notch" .


But by the sound of it , it only appears I have it in the notch an its notch actually IN the notches.
