parking brake adjustment

Recommended Posts

have just put in a brand new 2 part parking brake cable specific to the car(55 Buick)

It is clamped in position at the foot pedal and runs along the chassis,the 2nd part goes in the horseshoe and runs into the shoes and connected into the brake shoe lever.

The rear shoes have adjusted and the slack taken out of the parking brake cable.

However when the foot brake is depressed it goes to the floor and the shoes don't move.

when the drums are off and someone presses the foot brake the brake strut moves a little but does not operate the parking brake.

The same thing happens if you pull on the cable behind the shoe.

The only part i don't have is the cable spring,but don't think it would stop it from operating.
