Cousin has a 1979 I believe, ac 175, the right brake pedal is all free play no brake engaugment, apon further inspection the rod that runs into the bottom of the shoes rusted off/broke, removed top cover, can't see a thing, it would appear wheel, hub, drop axle, axle extension, hydraulic controls, fender etc.. comes off to remedy this, tell me there is a better way, once all that's off is the pin as big as a prob as the wds and 17s or is this something completely different, getting ready to tackle, need to know what I'm in for lol thanks Dusty

Fender comes off. Wheel/tire (in your case) comes off. Hydraulic console DOES NOT come off, unless you want to make the job miserable. You will have to disconnect some linkage underneath the console and wire it up out of the way, but the axle/final drive assembly will slide out underneath the hyd console. Lift cylinder elbow and hose get removed. You can put a prop under the console to the platform to force it up an inch or two. The broken off piece may be retrieved by removing the bands and their links and rotate the broken off piece to 12 oclock to use a torch/welder/whatever to get it out. The reason it is broken is because there wasn't any antiseize on the threads when last worked on.
