Maybe you guys been through this. I had to change one of the rear brake wheel cylinder because it's leaking. Got the parts from Oreilly (Brake shoes and drum) and the wheel cylinder at Winchester auto. Tried to put them back and drum will not line up or fit in the shoes. Adjusted the hex screw and still will not fit.
Here are my questions:
I called NISSAN parts dept. thinking maybe I should get it there but the parts guy is saying that I need the build date of my 71 Datsun because there's several versions of the brake drums and shoes. Is this true?
What can cause the drum and the shoes not to fit?
Thx for the help.
