PARKING BRAKE

Print

Most models are equipped with a foot operated ratchet type parking brake, though some may be equipped with a hand operated ratchet type. A cable or cable assembly connects this pedal to an equalizer which controls tension on the 2 rear cables which attach to the secondary brake shoes. Adjustment is made at the equalizer. If equipped, an intermediate cable connects the front cable with the equalizer.
