Removing rear brake cover 1987 Suzuki LT-4WD 250

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Trying to put new shoes on the rear brake of a 1987 LT-4WD. 

Can anyone tell me if I need to remove the big nut in the center of the hub to do so? (The yellow line in attached photo)

Or should that brake cover just pull off, like in this video https://youtu.be/UD18QGnFeCs?t=70

If it just pulls off... how much effort should it require? Because it seems stuck on there pretty darn good.

That nut (castle nut)should remain and the drum should come off.  Its very common for the drums to get seized on like that.  Yiu can tap it with a rubber mallet all around. It will loosen up.

Drum came off easily... after I took the parking brake off 😂 pretty embarrassing 

With the cover off - seems like it would be easier to change the shoes if I took the castle nut and the lug bolt X assembly off?

Hahaha that’s great. It happens, I’ve done stupider shit. I 

You certainly can. Just have extra cotter pins handy.  And might as well put some fresh grease on the splines while your there.

👍 good advice, thanks. Any tips on how to loosen that castle nut, or how to lock the axle while I try and turn it? Having a hard time getting leverage - it isn't counter-threaded is it?

Standard turn nothing’s reversed. If the axle is turning put a pipe wrench on the axle to hold it.

      Can anyone point me to a good set of instructions for changing front diff oil on a 1987 Suzuki LT4WD? I can almost guess which bolts are drain & fill... but I've been wrong before... 😆 
      I found some partial posts on other forums and they linked out to dead images and whatnot. Any help appreciated. 
      This thing is running pretty good, got the front brakes back to life, electric start works fine, seat cover fixed up, plastics stitched back together...

      I have some wobble in my right rear wheel. Too much wobble.
       
      So I've torn into it and will need two bearings and two (different) seals. I'd like to get them locally if possible but need to know the number on the sides of the bearings and seals as I don't know that my bearing shop can source them by vehicle model. I'm told they're very common bearings.
       
      Any idea what the numbers are if mine end up being illegible?
       
      Thanks,

      I have a 1987-89 (not sure on the year) Kawasaki bayou 300 that has electrical issues, I have replaced the entire harness with a proven good/used one, new CDI box, and two brand new coils, problem is that it tests no charge at the pickup coil, so I replaced and tested again with a so called good one that had been salvaged out of a blown up 220/250 (not sure which, the left side cover is smaller than my 300) in Missouri. It has a proven good OEM stator. I am trying to avoid buying a new start and pickup coil because it is so expensive so if anyone has a suggestion please let me know.

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.
