...even auto mechanics use it
Thought this was too good not to post.
P.S.: In case anyone is wondering, this was part of a drastic measure to get a stuck drum off - shoe adjuster had seized solid, locking the pads to the drum.
looks like either click or clack

Is that you Drew??
Yeah, that's where they put the derailler hanger on a 78 Fairmont.
I have spoken.
I did get the thing off though:
I'm not in the mood to meet to the moron who didn't grease the barrel adjusters on these things. For those who are unfamiliar with the system, drum brakes have a similar self-adjusting getup on them to Raleigh's self-adjusting brake levers.
So, where is the ear protection? Oh yes, after 2 minutes, temporary threshold shift sets in, and it does not hurt anymore.
Sweet looking car though, is that an 80s town car?
er; oh never mind, i see continental!
My Honda had one of those adjusters that was stuck as delivered from the factory. I think that car was made on Friday.
Didn't your FERRARI come with Campagnolo Wheels?
Cool car Kurt!
THose barrel adjusters can be a PITA. try getting the drums off of a 4 wheel drum setup on a '67 Chevy C10 after being on gravel for 8 years. What did you end up doing, cutting off the center section of the drum? I've found that you can drill out the adjuster, then get a grinder in there and split it in half. Only had to do that once though. Even the '67's adjusters started to move after being PB blasted.

I don't think I want that guy working on my bike...
Dang, those pics are making me want to get a hotrod Lincoln. Not as old, however. There's a 1988 Mark VII LSC I've been eying with a $600 price tag - interior is shot, 'lectric seats kinda work, sunroof leaks, electric windows work on driver's side only, rear airbag shocks are mostly shot. The 5.0 HO runs pretty darn well, though.

I found myself using a spoke to push the adjuster catch back; worked surprisingly well.
