Front brakes

The front brakes will no doubt be as bad as the back brakes. After removing the road wheel, take off the hub grease cover using a screwdriver.A split pin keeps the nut on the bearing, so tap that out with a punch.
Remember to slacken off the two Micram adjusters by turning the screws anticlockwise. This retracts the brake linings from the drum, making removal of the hub easier. Some very careful light tapping with a hammer removed the drum.
Remove the hose and banjo connections as one unit.Goodness, in shocking condition!

At the bottom of this picture (below) it is possible to see the pitting and scarring on the rubber seal. Off to the workshop for you!
