Thanks for this Louis. I'm going to tackle my rear drums on my FJ40 (same rear drums as a 60).

Very nice VID! Wish mine were that corrosion free when I open them up... alas, life in the rustbelt, sigh!

Well, after watching your video I just ordered 2 NEW OEM wheel cylinders from Cdan, since the reman. units lasted about 4 years since I put them in until 1 started spewing brake fluid (noticed this when I bled the brakes after replacing master cylinder and front calipers)!

I've got 2 questions for you Louis....
1. - Not sure what sleeve you mean in the bellcrank assembly? At first I thought you meant the clip that goes on the bellcrank where the cable attaches to the external part of it, but after re-watching the video, i see that is installed so.... hmmmm
2. - I see your tension spring goes right over the adjuster, so cool, is that original or replacement? mine is same as shown in the 84-90 FSM, I guess you could call it a segmented spring & it runs below the adjuster

I think it looks different b/c of the full floater. Looks like the bracket that holds the spindle on would get in the way if you had the spring run under the adjuster like on a semi-float.

Just for reference. I was going to order new adjusters from SOR, but found them for half price at RockAuto.

Raybestos part numbers (bought from RockAuto.com):
H12549 Right Side Adjuster kit (search under 1991 FJ80) $12.28
H12548 Left Side Adjuster kit (search under 1991 FJ80) $12.28
H17253 Spring kit $11.27

Ah, I realized this was a full floater, but that never occurred to me, thanks for that Dave!! Your pic is what I've got.

Thanks for taking the time to make this video. Very helpful, I'm sure I can do this myself.
