MAY - 2010
After a bit of a break, we are back to work on the Jeep. As you can see, by using a pair of builder’s trestles (courtesy of Tricia via free cycle) I have got a perfect working platform, which is at the right height.
The outside of the rear axle was cleaned up using an angle grinder with wire brush attachment. The nearside brake drum was removed with no problems and, as seen in the photo, was very clean inside. The offside drum took a lot off persuasion to be removed; again as you can see, this side is in a lot poorer condition. It must have been open to water ingress looking at the amount of rust. The break shoe linings had swollen & were breaking up.
