Having Trouble Removing Your Front Drums?

Woking on classic cars you often have to re-discover lost tools and techniques.

When working on front drums manufacturers often swaged the hub and drum together as a unit, and while there are various reasons for this it makes seperating things just a bit painful for the rest of us who aren't expecting it.

What you need is a swage removal tool. Like the A1107T from this place that cuts the swedge off so the stud can be removed. It's one of those pieces that is below mention because everyone just had it, or the manufacturer meant for the whole thing to be a unit and never talked about seperating the hub from the drum.
