Default Front brake install

I had pulled off my front brake Hub and drum assembly and had them rebuilt. I ordered the two mechanics handbooks from Lebarron Bonney about a month ago and still waiting. I was wondering if anyone could give me the steps to reinstall them what to do first where to put grease and stuff of that nature, or if anyone had a link to somewhere with the steps. I tried searching on here but couldn't find anything.

Sorry for the lack of mechanical skills lol. I'm an electrician.

Default Re: Front brake install

It's kinda a lot of info to type out. But if you took them off yourself just go in the reverse order. I'm assuming the brakes and hubs are assembled and ready to install. So the only things left to do if I remember right are to install the kingpins and brake actuating rod. Grease the actuating rod before installing from the bottom of the kingpin. The roller bearing goes under the kingpin head followed by a shim or two. ( there's a procedure to find out how many shims are needed ) then of course the upper spindle arm, axle, lower spindle arm then shim, felt, and brake wedge at the bottom. I just redid my braking system about 2 months ago so that should be accurate. If I'm missing something, somebody will no doubt correct me. There's some sharp cookies on here.
