Brakes on '62 Overlander

Hi All,
I have a '62 Overlander - I have no clue what the brake situation is... So my questions for you are:

-What should I look for to see what kind of shape they are in?
-Does anyone know of a step by step post or thread detailing brake repair/replacement?

Any other suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Meg & Chris

The best thing you can do with a 62 trailer is replace the axle. It is surely well worn out. A new axle replacement is something you can do yourself and you will get new brakes, new bearings,new seals, new brake drums and a much smoother ride for the price of a brake replacement at a dealers shop.
