    Bent brake shoe pivot

    I bought this front brake assy. on the bay. The brake shoe pivot was crooked, so the shoes where way out of wack. It was actually the backing plate that was bent. I put it in the vise, clamped on an angle for leverage, heated up the plate, and wala!

    I like to see these simple little fixes that other people do--- it makes me feel like I'm not alone..!
    Thanks for posting.
