Default Brake Shoes/lining

How do you remove the brake linings from the shoes when they are bonded?

Ive never tried it myself, but I recall some people burn them off. I would think heating the glue would make them let go.

One way is the original way. Friction. Ware them off, grinding. Actually that may kill you.

I'd go along with heat. Maybe put them in the O'gas fired Bar-B-Q in the back yard and go to town for a few hours. High heat. I thinking this is a ceramic glue and your going to need a lot of heat.
The reason I say that I use to work for a company that had a nice Air Commander aeroplane. Yep when Toby applied the pads to the disc brakes after touch down those rotors glowed red hot when the pressure was on. I'm sure those are glued on pads.

I would think that counter-sink drilling of the lining and screwing and nutting on the friction material to the shoes would work well once the old stuff was off.

I got into a big argument with some guys on the Old Ford Barn about bolting vs riveting using NAPA bulk lining.

So I won't say anything more. Other then it worked just fine for my 2200 gallon water truck. A C-60 Chevy.

skip.

Brake fluid seems to unbond them when the wheel cylinder leaks

The company that relines my shoes has some kind of oven that they cook
the bonded lining off the shoe. Whenever I take them shoes with bonded linings and ask for quick turn-around, they say it takes longer to cook 'em.
