Handbrake - adjustment
Braking system / Handbrake - adjustment

Adjustment is normally automatic, by the movement of the rear brake shoes on their automatic adjusters.

However, owing to cable stretch, supplementary adjustment is occasionally required at the control lever adjuster nut. The need for this adjustment is usually indicated by excessive movement of the control lever when fully applied.

1 The rear brakes should be fully applied when the handbrake control lever has been pulled over four or five notches.

2 If adjustment is required, release the locknut and turn the adjuster nut on the handbrake primary rod (photo).
