Rear drums and copper grease?


Recommended Posts

My D90 gets long periods of storage between use and consequently the rear brake shoes get time to rust at the circular pivot points at the bottom of the shoes.

Is it ok to put a very small amount of copper grease on the circular pivot point to keep the moisture and rust at bay?

Yes, you can use copper anti sieze (sparingly)on any of the metal to metal contact points. I always give the centre hole of the drum a quick rub round with emery cloth and a thin smear of copper slip to make it easier to remove the drum next time too.
