70 AMX Brakes needs brakes

Hi
My neighbor has a AMX that he asked me to help him with ( I have heat in my garage ). To do the rear brakes do I need a puller to remove the drums or does it come off w/o tools? We are also changing brake lines,calipers,cylinders etc... Anything to watch out for ? I've never worked on an AMC before so I just wanted to look for any pitfalls
Thanks Mike

As the Moderator here......I have watched this slowly fall down the listing without a response.......

I do not know about the AMX.........but on some of the slightly earlier American Motors products......they are like the early model Fords........and use a tapered axle/hub set up. They require a puller. You had to remove the nut on the end of the axle shaft...( good luck on that ) and then use a puller that hooks up to the 5 wheel bolt pattern ......and then it worked like a harmonic balancer puller.

Let us know.........if it worked out for you....

Thanx
I thought I might need a puller and the manual doesn't mention it. I'll
try it the standard way;remove tire and hopefully the drum falls off. If
not I won't force it
Thanx
Once again.
Mike
