    How to Install Drum Brakes on 60?

    I'm wondering if someone can point me to a link where there's a good tutorial on replacing worn rear drum brake on 60s? I'm comfortable with the front pads but not so with the rear drums. Braking is freakishly scary at best and am refreshing the system with pads, drums, new fluid, and brake bleed.
