It depends on what you are trying to determine. If you only want to know what size drums are on the vehicle, you should be able to determine that by measuring the drum diameter roughly from outside, across the center, or widest point. I believe, but don't remember for sure, that these vehicles came with either/or 9 or 10 inch drums on them, depending on the brake system installed. However, if you're trying to find out if they are still usuable, i.e. you hear grinding, or think you have damage, you must remove them, then measure the inside diameter with a brake drum micrometer, or any large inside diameter micrometer. The discard, or max diameter spec is stamped on the drum.
Take them off and measure the machined surface for width and the diameter.
On a 1991 Ford Ranger : Either 9 inch or 10 inch brake drums
Remove the drums and take them to an auto parts store that has a brake drum lathe.
You could have either 9 inch or 10 inch brake drums
No, the drums can be cleaned with brake cleaner.No, the drums can be cleaned with brake cleaner.
measure inside diameter of brake drum (where brake shoes touch drum) and measure outside diameter of brake rotors. usually if you look at wheel side of drums and rotors the size is stamped in millimeters on each
Remove the tire and wheel from your 1988 Ford Ranger pickup truck. Remove the brake pads. When the brake drum is not loose you can tap on it with a hammer or mallet. Once the brake drum is loose it will slide off.
start by taking the tires off
If you are inexperienced, you should not be messing around with the brake drums.
New brake drums are broken in the first time you go for a drive usually.
If the brake shoes measure less than 4/32nds thickness, if cracking or warping is observed on the brake drums, if the brake shoes and/or drums become coated in oil (as is what happens when a wheel seal goes bad), or if you hear escaping from the brake chambers when the brakes are released, then you know at least one component in the brake system is bad.
brake drums should pull off if not rusted on.
Remove the wheels from your 1995 Toyota Camry. Remove the brake pads by removing the brake pad Springs. Tap on the brake drum with a hammer or mallet. Slide the brake drums off. Reverse the process to install the new brake drums and shoes.

Brake drums can not be cut. The shoes inside can be replaced.Only disc brakes(rotors) can cut.
i was wondering how to change rear brake drums for 1999 Chevy venture
Almost all Auto Parts stores and machine shops resurface rotors and brake drums.
Begin by removing the break assembly from your 1994 Mercury. Tap on the rear brake drums with a hammer or mallet. The brake drums will become loose and will simply slide off.
I diagnose the brake system starting with inspecting the master cylinder and the level of brake fluid in the reservoir, then if safe to do so, a road test, then I remove all four wheels, calipers, drums, brake pads, measure the rotors/brake drums and do an inspection of each brake assembly on each wheel including the brake lines and brake hoses. Then make a list of parts needed to bring the brakes up to specs.
Inside diameter. You will need to remove drum to do this. Take the drums to your local auto parts store, they can measure them with a micrometer and let you know if you need new ones or not.
Any auto parts store can provide you with the correct size. ANSWER You could have either 9 inch or 10 inch drums
Most of them are located inside the brake drums.
