Axle is built up as a sub unit when the car is built, without the screws

the brake drums would fall off, if you fit one the hub is out of

balance, hence two screws. Screws could be three colours, silver zinc

plate, gold phosphate or black which is a chemical black rust proofing.

Jim,
Why do you want to remove them? Or looking at the question from a different
angle, why has Triumph always used them? There are two per brake in my TR 2.

Re; screws - It's hard to tell but mine are magnetic and may be cadmium (I think) plated or painted silver. I believe anodizing is only for aluminum. What is the correct answer? FYI - When I removed the drums on my '80 TR 7 built in Dec 79 it appears that the 4spd self adjusting mechanism is installed or the correct adjusting mechanism is installed incorrectly. Presently can't tell for sure. My other TR 7 built in Nov 79 has the mechanism installed like in the brake removal file.

Yes, please do this! Why, you might ask?



When I get a report of a car with only 120 or so miles on it, I look to see if

the brake drum screws are still in place (along with other things). Anorak

question: are they painted or anodized or what? Yes, I know the answer.

Thought I did that last time I removed them. But certainly will this time if I should decide to retain them. R/ Paul C.

I was going to say that Ted, the screw is not really necessary. I usually put

mine back but only very loosely.

Impact driver once.B  Once the screw is removed, throw itB  away so you

are not tempted to use it. The wheel retains the drum. Ted

I believe the originals are Pozidriv.  But if you are to the point of needing

the impact driver, I believe a Phillips is going to be OK.

The biggest phillips tip has a flat bottom on it, so I guess you can call it a

posi drive.
