    My front brakes were incredibly soft so I thought I'd adjust the brake arm. Well, it came off easy enough but when you try to get it back on the splined 'stud' slips back into the drum so you're not able to fully seat the arm.



    Any special techniques to this or am I really going to have to pull the wheel off to hold it from the inside while I hit the arm from the outside?

    Take a screw driver and place it in the slot just beneath the splined hole on the brake arm. Twist the screw driver and open up the hole a little bit. That should help. If not, I've also used the plastic handle of a screw driver and tapped it on and the vibration makes it pop right on.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    It just seems that as soon as I put any pressure on it, it gets driven back into the drum. Ugh.

    If I recall, when I did mine, the lever and shaft keyed so it only goes on one way. Look carefully at the shaft and I think there is an extra wide spline while on the lever there is a corresponding extra wide groove, or maybe it is the other way around. If you line it up just right it goes together very easily.

    You may have shoved your brake pads off the ramp. Might wanna take a look.
