That is the way several knowledgeable guys do it. It made no difference on mine, but I had other problems--primarily the S-cams skidding on the rollers instead of rotating them. That "clean and lubricate" procedure made an amazing difference in my brakes!

I'm somewhat curious as to whether blowing out the drums as well as one can would help in preventing "glazing". I'll probably never get a definitive answer to that since it's so hard to control the "experiment".

I can see no way that the roller could ever get out of place--there is just no place for it to go.

Have you ever renewed Eaton shoes and left off the roller retaining springs? They seem to be only on Eaton brakes. Other brands don't seem to have them.
It's been a long time. I moved from the heavy truck division, in 1990.

I do recall pinching some roller retainers out of the holes and pulling them with the rollers, maybe. Or flipping them over into the shoe.

I don't think all, had roller retainers.

I do recall the slotted roller, someone mentioned, on smaller front brakes.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that again when I pull the drums next time. I think it may be possible to do what you're talking about with the retainer springs--push them out of the holes, then pull the roller/spring together. It sure would be nice to get that big spring out by hand! The new springs (not installed yet) are even stiffer than the originals.
