We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages.

Trailer Drum Brake Flush Kit : Did you drill out the backing plate on the brake drum to install a fitting to squirt water?

5 posts in this topic

Yes, make sure you use the size drill indicated in the instructions and all will be fine.

 

Yes it has a diverter that sprays the water throughout, it will help with cleaning the brakes but not the bearings. I suggest bearing buddies to resolve that issue.

Thanks David! Does the water stream have a "spreader" it hits to disperse , or does it just hit metal inside and get sprayed around? I have $400 into bearings and brakes and wonder if you think this will prevent the rapid level of corrosion?
