Front hub removal (drum brakes)

The following was sent in by Christopher Gallagher from Irvine, Scotland:

If you have removed the front subframe without the engine from the car and forgot to start the hub nuts one way to lock the hubs is to turn the brake adjusters so the brakes are locked on. This combined with a long extension bar, blowlamp, lots of WD40, a sledge hammer and a few choice words usually shifts them!

Not too sure we agree with the last part, but the essence of the method is sound!

Thanks Christopher!
