Question about 1987 Nissan Pickup
Parking Break does not work. For a while it was sketchy, and you had to give it an extra 2mm tug to get it to engage. And it had a weak grip. Now it has no effect whatsoever. I assume it is the cable from the hand mechanism to the brake drums. Does anyone have a diagram of the parking break system or any other ideas?
On most vehicles, the left and right parking brake cables come together and are attached to a lever linkage called an "equalizer" yoke under the vehicle. The equalizer yoke balances, or equalizes, the amount of force that is applied to both cables when the parking brake is applied. The equalizer linkage, in turn, is connected to a single cable that runs to the parking brake lever or pedal. An adjustment screw may be located on the front cable where it connects to the equalizer, or where the cable attaches to the parking brake lever.The point is to tighten the cable. Look for an adjustment screw.
