Rear Brake Squeal

The rear brakes on my 81" Custom squeal a bit. I have plenty of material left on the brake shoes. Anybody have this problem ?

That giant o ring is a seal, If you know where it goes you should fit it.

Mine fell apart when i last cleaned up the wheel etc to fix screaming brake so it's not there anymore
but one day I'll order a new one!

oops - just re-read your post! but see my original reply. Better to get one but not critical (for a little while). eventually grease from the drive could travel into the brake drum so dont leave it too long!
