Return to Home

Thanks to Dale Cheney for parts and superior service!

Lightly grease the backing plate where the brake
cylinder mounts since it slides up and down a little



Clean and lube all parts of the adjuster
especially the adjuster screw



Grease this fitting for the parking brake


New hose installed on the left side into
T fitting on axle housing



Install cylinder, 1st clip open end down, top clip open
end up. The 2 indentations on the 1st clip
will align with 2 holes in the top clip



Install rubber boot before attaching brake line
and parking brake. If you can't start the first 3
turns of the brake line by hand, you have it
cross threaded and it wil leak



Short spring on the adjuster side


Long spring on the cylinder side

Install 2 pins with coil springs and retainers

Cotter key in parking brake arm
ready to put the brake drums back on
