First check the brake shoes for thickness, if good, you can use a gauge for adjusting, if not avaiable, set the drum in place and behind the plate there is a small hole with a screw driver or a brake adjunting blade turn the inside ajuster and turn the drum, is better to do it with the tire on.

How do I adjust emergency brake on 1990 ford f 350 dually

Under the cab on the drivers side about even with the door hinge the cable splits for the two different sides, right in this junction is an adjustment rod in the cdables connecter. If all things are the same and the brake is'nt tight enought to hold the truck don't adjustr any hting till you check the rear brakes as your describing the brake shoes worn out and even groung into the drums. The cables only need to be adjusted as the cables are removed or changed and once adjusted are good to go. The rear break shoes can be OK but thier adjustment to be as close to the break drums as possible with the shoes adjusters. You can get into the back of the drum though the adjustment hole but some don't have the hole and the drum will need to be removed. If you have this problem the brakes need to be looked at anyway and worn parts changed to new as failure altogether cvan cause a crash.

Is there a trick to removing a rear brake drum on a 92 f250

Get a brake shoe adjusting tool at any auto parts store to retract the shoes back to a smaller diameter to release the pressure on the brake drum for removal

Have a 93 ford f250, blead the brakes but brakes still needs to be pumped before pedal hard. brakes hard when engine not running but after engine starts pedal become weak.

Sounds like you still have air in the system.
Also may need to adjust rear brakes so they don't have to travel as far to contact drums. They are supposed to self adjust as the brake linings wear down but most cars do not do this as well as they are supposed to.

How do you remove the rear brake drum on a 2004 ford taurus

Cannot remove rear brake drums

You need to back off the adjusters on the rear shoes to allow the worn drum to pass over the brake shoes.
A worn drum will have a unworn drum section on its outer edge where the brake shoes don't normally rub.
This must unworn ring must be able to pass over the brake shoes before you can get the drum off.

Two tools should be used through the brake adjuster access hole.
One small diameter blade screwdriver can be used to push the self adjuster lever away from the notched adjuster nut, while a second flat bladed tool is used to lever the adjuster nut, rotating it so as to back off brake shoe expander adjustment.
