Question about Ford Mustang
Theese have a "piece of junk" cam action that rusts solid in a few years. If the parking brake is depressed at the wrong time the cam will lock the parking brake shoes against the drum and take the drum and brakes shoes out. Since the drum and rotor are a one piece combo, you will have a nice repair bill. Probably need to take the unit
apart every 20K or so, clean it up and lube the cam levers. My truck had less than 20K on in when I found the cam levers rusted together so solidly that I had to hammer them
apart. I painted my parts with galvanize paint and then lubed the pivot point with anti-seize. In answer to this question of adjustment, on these trucks, there is an adjustment spool similar to those used in the standard drum brake systems. It can be
accessed from the back side of the drum cover through a plugged hole also the same as a standard drum brake system.
