Adjustment



The rear brakes have a self-adjusting mechanism that does not require adjustment for proper drum to shoe clearance when brake shoe has been replaced or brake drum has been removed for some other service.

Adjustment is automatically accomplished by depressing brake pedal 3-5 times after all parts are installed. Then check brake drum for dragging and brake system for proper performance.
