    Moose, my front drums have a screw set into it that my rear didn’t. What’s the purpose?? Does it hold on the drum!! That’s my guess. I had the wheel off and that’s all so far. You had mentioned before that the front should be the same as the rear. Would the difference be the front could be heavier application. Front 1 ton and rear 3/4. If i need to remove the screws to remove the drums I’m sure i’ll need heat to do that. Everything went easy on the rear once i got all the parts figured out. One of my reasons for getting it was it would be something i could easily work on.

    I don’t believe the screw serves any purpose other than to hold the drum in place until the wheel is mounted. Hopefully it’ll come loose with a little break-free.
