Re: Disk Swap on an Eaton HO52

By now we should have the brake hardware off (including the shoes, all the springs, levers, etc).

Disconnect the brake line from the brake cylinder. There is no need to remove the cylinder from the backing plate.

The last thing you need to remove to gain access to the bolts that hold on the backing plate is the center dust cover. Small hammers, large screwdrivers, anything that you can use to slowly tap the cover off. It is tight and probably partially rusty so be patient.

Dust cover is indicated by the yellow arrow:
