Hi all,

I have an old 3 wheel Huxleys Cushman Truckster, from the 80's I am sure (see picture). 2 cylinder OMC Petrol engine. Not in great condition but running and doing a job.

The problem I have is that I dont have any brakes, so an overhaul is in order. I am attempting to take the rear brake drums apart but no luck, a lump hammer alot of crow bar action, but no budge.

So my question is does anyone know how to get these apart? I have heard from various american sources that there is a specific puller for them? Does anyone know if this is right? or can anyone shed any light on the matter?

Your assistance would be most appreciated.

Don't lever on the drum edges.

You may have the two threaded holes in the face which you can screw 2 bolts in to force against the hub.

Apply the hammer to the face of the drum in the area where the wheel seats, (as if you were hammering it 'on').

Not the side or rear edge.

Hi, thanks Sumomosr and RedexRob for your replies.

I will have a look and a go if the threaded holes are there. I have the manual for it but its the brake pads that I am sure will need changing and a general overhaul of whats in there.

Question to RedexRob, have you carried out the operation before or have you just a manual for a Cushman?

sorry , not worked on them but used to deal in spares , had an old parts manual lying around. Dealt with lots of stuck Fomoco brakes before , shock and heat used to be the answer.

ianthecaddy?

Are you the guy who was asking about an old Ransomes Mastiff some considerable time ago?

If so, how did you get on with it?

If not, my apologies.

Green is not necessarily beautiful.

Ian, the old 3 wheel Cushman turf truckster had a special knock off tool to remove the rear drums. It was basicaly a very long nut that was loosly screwed to the half shaft and hit very hard with a large hammer to knock the drum off of the taper.
