Question about 1993 Ford Thunderbird
I just did a total overhaul of my rear brakes on my Tbird. drum brakes. I put in everyday (shoes, hardware, wheel cylinders, and drums). I was wondering if I must now adjust the parking brake? If so, HOW?? Also, do I do the parking brake adjustment before/after I put in brake fluid and/or adjust the star wheels up?
On most of the cars us use a special spanner tool that resembles a bent screwdriver. you pull the plastic cap out from the back of the drum and then just turn the ajustment wheel till you feal it tighten up a litle. Remember to put the plastic cap back on. Also a old trick most people don't know about is put the car in reverse in a parking lot, and slam on the brakes. most cars have a auto ajustment that they never use.
