What do you think about this video?

kevintii: Great video.  I will subscribe for sure.  I am having an issue with the rear brakes not self adjusting as time goes by.  I have replaced all the hardware as this guy did.  I even ground the wear ridge out of the backing plate from the shoes rubbing over time so the new shoes would not just sit in this grove.  I greased the new shoes as he did too.  The only thing I can think of is the arm that spins the star wheel seemed to be a l little loose from the star wheel.  I didn't buy the the brake parts from the dealer either.  I think they were Auto Zone.  I am seeing in other things as well that none dealer/factory parts are close, but not exactly what you need.  Anyone have any insight on this?
Thanks

PEPE MORENO: Thanks

Joseph Harrison: Real nice job and thank you for this great video.

Mark Slusz: Do all 2 wheel drive Tahoes of this vintage have 11" drums?

Angelo Stango: If you don't do this every day, do one side at a time, use the other for reference....ask me how I learned this...the hard way instead of listening to an old time mechanic.  Easy enough job, but take your time and do it right.  Also, I found most hardware kits do not include the adjuster pieces (those are separate kits), and the wheel cylinder plungers are nearly impossible to find, and not included in the hardware kits, nor is the parking brake bar (that goes between each shoe), so clean and reuse them if possible.  My 86 K10 pick up didn't have the adjustment plug in the rear, so I drilled and routed out one, and found some old plugs, made life a whole lot easier.  Also, make sure you purchase the correct size brakes for your vehicle.  These old square body trucks have two different sizes that I'm aware of.

Mr. J: what tool do i need to remove the hub assembly? thank you for your help

Thomas Bartlett: Yet another great how to video. Thanks for sharing you knowledge and experience.

Mark Slusz: Great! Thanks!!!

JB HATCH: Fantastic video but I'm stuck with a problem. In a hurry I bought an 88 G20 van because I was rear ended by an uninsured motorist. She totaled my 95 G30 and it burned up almost with me in it. My 88 G20 need rear brake work. I decided to replace everything. New hardware, new shoes, new cylinders, new drums, new parking brake cable. The problem I'm having is that the pass side brakes are over adjusting and I don't know why. I'm tempted to just go get new hardware for that side. I will watch this video again in the morning before I tear into it. I don't see where I did anything different. Any ideas?

Michu Pichu: excellent information. very informative

djhmo5: Okay, I have done a ton of brake jobs over the last 40 years. The methods and techniques in the video are perfectly fine. But just a couple of things: (1) you rarely have to replace any hardware parts, just clean them up a bit. Even the stuck adjuster wheel, put the adjuster in a vise, tap it with a hammer, and use a vise grip to grab the knob and break it loose. Failing that, heat the knob and it will come loose from the adjuster. (2) This is really important - never, never, never put on new brake shoes without rebuilding the wheel cylinders or getting new ones. Reason: residue builds up inside the wheel cylinder behind where the seals move. As the shoes wear, the seal move outward. When you put on new shoes, you push the seals farther back and the seals now ride over the residue, which grinds the seals and in about a month they will leak. Then you have to take everything apart all over again to fix the wheel cylinders. (3) be careful about the dust inside a rear drum brake. Most rear brakes are no longer made from asbestos, but if the shoes were replaced with parts from foreign countries, they could be made with asbestos.
