Default snow trac brake job

a few boring pictures
the shoe was dragging last winter .so it was backed off .
easy to work on while it is on the trailer

drum pulled and all looks good. I just cleaned ,greased and bled the line


all vw brake shoes and springs.

I run it after the drums were back on and it seem ok. we'll find out in 100 days when it snows.

pistenbully is next . i'm replacing a few tired hydraulic hoses before they fail.

Jim, I commend you on the brake job. I found that I couldn't even get through a season without the pads and springs all rusted and the brakes never working properly. So I ended up taking them out, including the parking brake handle which I got tired of tripping over each time I got into the driver seat. Hope the brakes treat you well for the coming season.

my boot has a few marks from the e brake also. it is surprising how many don't have working foot brakes.
