I just looked at the brake shoes again to confirm it. There's a shoe on each side of the brake disc. It looks like the only way to get the inner shoe off is by dropping transmission out. I don't see how else you would get the brake disc off. Has someone ever worked on a Simplicity before? The brakes are ok for now. But at some point that inner pad would have to be replaced. The disc would rub on the Transmission case eventually. I think it's a poor design. Um, I guess that why I have a Wheel Horse!
