Cracked, Scored or Grooved Drum
A cracked drum is unsafe for further service and must be
replaced. Do not attempt to weld a cracked drum.
Smooth up any slight scores. Heavy or extensive scoring
will cause excessive brake lining wear and it will
probably be necessary to resurface drum braking
If brake linings are slightly worn and drum is grooved,
drum should be polished with fine emery cloth in the
direction of drum depth but not circumferentially along
When drum is removed, visually inspect
wheel cylinder for brake fluid leakage.
Correct leaky point, if any.
