Okily folks, I have my newly strengthened xfer case arms on and am about to put it all back under the rig. I was wondering how I go about tightening the hadnbrake up (it barely holds at all).
When I removed the xfer I noticed that the small spring area directly under the handbrake lever on the underside of the rig was pretty much wound all the way up.
Could it be as simple as replacing the brake drum pads on the back of the xfer or would it be a new cable time? I have no idea what condition the pads are in yet as I couldn't be buggered trying to remove the drum from the back of the xfer.
Tighten up mine 88 Sam about 2 weeks ago. It was
a very simple to adjustment as I recall.
Sprayed nut adj. mech. with WD40 loosen locking nut and
adjusted nut tube thing forward with a wrench. Went too
far in tightening had to adjust it back little. Once you
get get under there look out you will see how it works.
im thinking that skippy's is a tcase mounted drum break though... not real sure on how to adjust that one, but since you have the tcase off you should take apart that drum and check out the shoes inside, they might be all worn off
