Question Answered: my brake drums are rusted to the axle spindle.
July 01, 2014, 04:26 PM
They can be tough, sometimes seemingly impossible. Tap it with a small hammer all around the axle a lot, helps loosen up the bond. With a large rubber hammer hit the out edges; left, right, top, bottom....it should work loose. If it breaks free but won't come all the way off you may need to loosen the brake adjuster so the shoes don't bind on the drum, there's often a wear lip that'll snag the shoes as you pull the drum.

Always stalls, no way to keep it running? Does it thump hard when you put it in D or just turn off?

Motor mount, specifically the passenger side upper. It's a pretty easy replacement.
