Question about Cars & Trucks
All new hand break cables (3),new shoes and adjusted to the drums which were skimmed several mechanics have looked at it but still not working argh?!
Pull the drums back off and check how the hand brake cable is attached. pull the cable from the back and see if the shoes open out. It is possible to put the handbrake actuator in incorrectly so that the shoes do not move outwards when the cable is pulled. Next reassemble the drums and pull the cable again from the back and see it that stops the drum from turning. Check to see how far the hand piece comes out /up or down if it is a foot operated lever. In all cases correct adjust is around 3-4 clicks of the ratchet . If it comes all the way out check and adjust the cable at the hand ( if it has 2 cables to the handle or if the cable goes from wheel to the other and there is just the one cable up to the handle piece then adjust it where the single cable pulls on the one that goes to the back shoes
