Good morning,
Handbrake ineffective on 1988 GTL purchased last week.
What size socket required to remove rear drum.
Everything else OK-ish.
Not stunningly attractive but strong engine/transmission etc ....
Thanks in advance ....

Hi Neil, taking the rear drum off is far easier than the front.

Firstly you'll have to get the dust cover off by knocking it gently from all sides with a rubber mallet or a piece of wood. Then remove the split pin and then the castle nut, which is only finger tight.

Here are the components:
