SOURCE: i have an isuzu tfs

For starters, set the cable adjustment back to the original setting. We in the States have something similiar called an Hombre. Follow the instructions for adjustings the rear brakes FIRST. Once these have been adjusted, if the brake will still not hold, then and only then, adjust the cable setting a couple of turns at a time until at least 3 - 5 clicks are achieved when setting the parking/emergency (depending on where you are in the world) brake. Let me know if you need anything further.


REAR DRUM BRAKES


See Figure 1
Normal adjustments of the rear drum brakes are automatic and are made during the reverse applications of the brakes. The following procedure should be used ONLY if the linings have been replaced.

Fig. Fig. 1: Drum brake adjustment

  1. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  2. Using a punch and a hammer on the rear of the backing plates, knock out the lanced metal areas near the starwheel assemblies on each plate. The metal areas may already have been removed and covered with rubber adjustment plugs, if so remove the plugs by grasping and pulling with a pair of pliers.

After knocking out the lanced metal areas from the backing plate, the wheels must be removed and all of the metal pieces discarded, then the wheels should be reinstalled for adjustment.
  1. Insert a suitable brake adjustment tool such as J-4735 or equivalent, into the breaking plate slots and engage the lowest possible tooth on the starwheel. Move the end of the brake tool downward to move the starwheel upward and expand the adjusting screw. Repeat this operation until the wheels can JUST be turned by hand. This is a position immediately before the brakes lock.

The brake drag should be equal at both wheels.
  1. Back off the adjusting screws 24 notches (clicks). By the time you have backed off the adjustment 12 clicks, the brakes should have no drag. If a heavy drag is still present, the parking brake cable is likely in need of adjustment.
  2. Make sure both sides of the brakes are properly adjusted. When backing off the brakes on the other side, the adjusting lever must be backed off the same number of turns to prevent side-to-side brake pull.
  3. After the brakes are adjusted, install a rubber hole cover into each of the backing plate slots. To complete the brake adjustment operation, make several stops while backing the vehicle to fully equalize the adjustment.
  4. Road test the vehicle.

My handbrake needs adjusting in my Toyota Corolla 1994. Can u please explain how this adjustment is done.


Hello, My usual Brands are Ford products, but Foreign cars usually use simple, less expensive ways to do things. Assuming the brake pads are good, there should be a cable connected to the handbrake. You would usually pull the handbrake up to engage about 1/4 the way to engagement and lock it there.
Then you would go underneath the car and find the cable that stretches from the handbrake lever to a juction with a second cable. There should be an adjusting thread somewhere at this intersection.

With the rear wheels off the ground, you would tighten the nut on the threads of the handbrake cable until you hear rubbing in the rear brakes. Then get inside the car and pull back on the handbrake lever and you should not be able to move the rear wheels with the handbrake set. You then release the handbrake 100% and the rear wheels should turn mostly without noise.

Now if you can not find an adjustment nut under the car, it is possible the handbrake adjustment nut is under the handbrake cover/boot inside the car. Still use the same process of setting the lever 1/4 engaged and tightening the threaded cable until the rear wheels start dragging.

I hope this helps you.

Adjusting fuel pump


If you have the 91 3.1 V6 Rodeo you can't adjust the fuel pump or fuel pressure. The only thing you can really do is to get a throttle body rebuild kit that will have a new diaphragm for the fuel pressure regulator. If you want to adjust it, you'll have to get an aftermarket regulator and install on the return line (the smaller line) and remove the spring out of the regulator on the throttle body. If you feel the fuel pressure is too low, then you might need to change the pump. Its located in the fuel tank, only takes 1 or 2 hours to do.

Brake pedal too low before the brakes work.


sounds like you have air in your lines; you need to have someone with you to bleed out the air; or take it to a shop that works on brake issues,,should be pretty simple

Seems like you have a seized gearbox. If the engine can turn on the starter when you depress the clutch that will confirm the problem lies in the gearbox. One outside possibility is that there is an inboard handbrake on the Isuzu. An inboard handbrake is commonly located at the back of the gearbox on the drive shaft. If this is the case it could be the handbrake jamming.

Handbrake problems with 1990 Isuzu Bighorn


Usually the adjustment is in the cables, either at the e-brake handle or at the caliper. I don't know of an adjustment on the caliper itself. Take a look at each rear caliper and see if it looks like something is broken off or missing. Something integral to the system may have just flat out broken off.
