Hi all

I,m trying to get in the the front drum on my d14.  There is a large alum nut - do I just screw this anticlockwise to remove?

Thanks Ian

Sorted anticlockwise - it just didn't feel right.

Maybe someone can help - when you spin the drum in relation to the wheel it doesnt look quite true the gap between the drum and wheel varies.  Is this normal or the sign of warpage?

Thanks

Ian

Hi Ian     This is not unusual,  make sure the brake plate is being held against the wheel bearing as you tighten down the nut, and apply the brake at the same time to keep the brake shoes as central as possible .
