Are you talking about two bolts that go into the drum on the brakes so
it will push the rear brake drum off the hub so you can get the drum
off?? if so then try a 9 MM bolt.. make sure it goes into the hole
squarely.... i had a 75 datsun pickup truck and thats what i needed....
i went to the hardware store by the house and bought about three bolts,
it looked like a 1/4 in. size, but it was metric.. so i got either a
8,9,10 mm bolt and tried it to size and i think the 9 mm was the one..
so i went back and gave the guy at the local store the others and got
one more 9 mm bolt and it worked fine... it was the only way to get the
drum off.... hope this helps.
Thanks. After I posed the original message, I found a set of tools that gave
the dimensions as 8mm x 1.25. Well, I went and bought a couple of 8mm bolts,
and no go.
Looks like I'll have to take it to a brake shop. I'll try to take plenty of
lube with me so the screwing they're going to give me won't hurt as bad.
============could be 8x1.5.....did the 8 start to go in? looked to be the right size?
Maybe just rust or the wrong thread. It is very likely to be an even number
like 8mm or 10mm. You can buy alot of bolts for the money they will charge
you to do the brakes...I wouldnt give up so fast. GL
