    Grimeca brakes

    I have taken off the front wheel from my newly acquired quattroGrimeca brakes-dsc_0445.jpgGrimeca brakes-dsc_0446.jpg to overhaul the brakes as they are nearly non existent. The inner hubs were shiny and the pads, although not very worn are pretty well glazed. I have the shoes off the back plates and these have been cleaned with brake cleaner. I cant see how to get the shoes off the cam spindle. Is there a special tool to hold the shoes apart when taking them off?

    Easier to do if the pivot is still in the backing plate. Lift up the shoe a bit and use a screwdriver to pop them off. Easy
