rear drum brake set up please

Recommended Posts

Can one of you guys help please.

I have a 55 Buick Special,when i imported the car to England it had no parking brake,i bought a front and rear cable from cars inc,now i spent today fitting it, it is clamped in position inside the dash and runs front to rear in it's normal places the rear cable is mounted on the horseshoe,the brakes have been adjusted and the parking brake tensioned.The problem is when i apply the parking brake the spreader bar that pushes the brake shoes to lock up isn't moving far enough to move the brake shoes. Can someone put up a picture of the rear drum set up so i can compare and see if something is missing.

As you can imagine it is difficult to get a Workshop manual in England.

Any help appreciated.
