Before the flaming starts, I don't want to spend a crap load of money on something that is cheap in the states and is rarely used anyway. What do they use or can I use to re-glue the linings back onto the parking brake shoes. The parking brake still works but the linings have separated from the shoes. Hot glue wouldn't work as the heat from the disk brake would melt it and shoe goo takes too long to dry.

I'd suggest Igloo...it will help keep the shoes cool so they won't fall off...

Ahem, sorry...I thought they were riveted on...so there is another alternative...drill holes and use pop rivets...

Um, what exactly is the axle from and what is the brake configuration?

If this is drum brakes that is part of the service brake and a very bad idea.

if it were me I'd try a 2-part adhesive from 3m, but a tube of that costs more than new shoes. I think whatever you use, it should be 2 part, maybe try one of those 2-part epoxies from the hardware store.

Sorry dude, but for safety purpose, I would never try to glue a lining back on. In the year models you have posted, I'm assuming you only have rear drums. You're rear drums are used for more than jit your prking brake. Just for peace of mind, spending an extra few bucks isn't that bad.

yeah, new shoes aren't that much. maybe 50 bucks and you can put new shoes, new springs and hardware and new wheel cylinders. And Ask yourself this:

Is my life worth $50? is someone elses life worth $50?

What's the point of posting without reading the original post. perhaps I should have posted it in the tailgate, gat a stupid answer thread. It's a drum style parking brake inside a disk service brake. You guys in the states have no idea how expensive some parts are here, even then I would never get cheap on parts like service brakes etc. Parts we never use and just rattle and annoy are a different thing altogether.

Sure, if you want a half @$$ed answer, go get some 30min 2 part epoxy and call it a day. But no one will be to blame but yourself when the glue fails and lodges into the rotor. Not all of the replys were from people in the lower 48. If parts are that expensive there, then maybe you should try looking online.

Canada? Really. I thought you were in Egypt or Japan the way you were talking up the price of parts. Haha. My friend has a summer home in Canada, it's not like there is a Berlin Wall between us.

JB Weld and/or melted lead might do it.

As one Canadian to another, parts are not that bad. Shop carefully and you'll be OK.

Now please stop making us look bad!

If I had your problem I would just take them to a relining shop. We have them here in Panama City. My local one is called Bondag. When I lived in Jamaica there was one in Savannah La Mar. Don't remember the name of that one though. When my Ssangyong needed the front pads replaced I could buy ones from the dealership for $200 or get them relined at Bondag for $20.

You Canadians try to make it like you live next door to Nanook of the North or something. When I have something shipped here it is about $15 a pound on top of what it costs me to get it shipped to Miami.... So be like me... Either do it yourself or get over it and stop complaining.

By the way I am not being a dick as I answered your question in my earlier post and you still got your panties in a wad.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
The "glue" used for bonding linings to the shoes needs heat and pressure to cure. Usually somewhere in the 100-250 psi and 350°+ ranges.

Your not going to find some off-the-shelf epoxy that will hold up to the temp/pressure/shear forces of the brakes...

Just spend the $20 on new shoes.

Dude,
1. no where in your original post do you say that this is a disc brake setup. As most Rangers/B2s have drum brakes, this is an easy assumption to make.

2. your profile under your user name states you have an 84 B2 (stock drum brakes) and a 91 Explorer (also stock drum brakes.)

3. your post has nothing in it suggesting you did an axle swap to either vehicle.

So if you want *accurate* help, give as much information as possible.

And since several others chimed in on the matter and you are still griping,

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=adhesive+used+on+brake+shoes

Search. it might save you the flame war you were not wanting in the first place...
