Comments on how to fix brake shoe spring on a Zhonghua M3:
Leverage is an awesome thing dude
I loathe drums, but this video helped greatly! Although I only had pliers to work with so this was about as much fun as sticking my nuts in a salad shooter.
great video! I had no idea that measuring tool existed. genius.
Ford really screwed the pooch with this brake system, from smaller retainer clips to brake lever removal. Seems Ford does not want to move forward with better ideas always the worst. Been a mechanic for over 40 years and seen some stupid things and this one is one of them. Remember when they placed the ignition wires right over the fuel injectors, that was just great once you had an insert go bad it was bye bye Lincoln. By the way if you place a pair of grips with a rag in the center cable for the emergency pull and grip and will give you extra cable to install a non-needed replacement lever. I use to love Fords from the Shelby to the Galaxy 500 but now forget them with their BS ideas thou it's good for me as I charge more for anything with a Ford name on it. Good video bud keep up with your work in helping out the novice and experienced mechanic new ideas always a plus, thanks

I’ve done this style brake drums and it took me 30 minutes due to some complications. Another pro tip u do not need to take any aprons off the get a wheel cylinder on if u forget to put it together. And the hold down springs are a pain in the ass
Just starting on my series 2a SWB Land Rover... very new at this and have taken great heart from your excellent videos!
Great video! Learning a lot! Much appreciated. Yes, I believe you need to cut a small recess channel in the gasket that aligns wit the the notch on the transfer case to allow the leaking oil to drain out the notch. If not the gasket will act like a dam an prevent the leaking oil from draining!
