While everything was off wheel to install new bearings and hub seal, I inspected the wheel cylinders and brake shoes. One of the cylinders was not working creating uneven ware on pads. Decided to replace pads and both RH wheel cylinders. When installing, I made the mistake of attempting to bleed without drum on. This is the type of mistake you do once. What a mess. Will need to bleed system thoroughly as reservoir in single stage master went down allowing air into top of system.

Packed bearings with grease and used multipurpose for inside of hub per FSM. Installed hub then bearing, new bearing washer, 54mm nut, star washer then second 54mm nut, gasket then locking hub and retaining clip. The locking hub now engages and disengage perfectly.
