NEED DRUM BRAKE HELP ASAP..TRUCKS DOWN!!
97 STD. CAB RANGER..2.3L 5-SPEED STEP SIDE SHORT BOX. just finished putting rear brakes, hardware kit, and starwheel adjusters on both sides, driver side seems to be ok, but passenger side locks up wiht starwheel COMPLETELY backed off, as soon as i put drum on pass. side it click click click clicks the star wheel and locks up when i turn it foward!?!?! i believe i have done all work correctly, my cable for parking brake is routed towards the REAR of vehicle(inside drum brake setup), the big shoes are towards the REAR of vehicle, is there something im missing or dont incorrectly? i believe whoever did brakes before me just let this issue go because when i pulled the drum off..the front shoe(smaller friction pad) was completely worn out and the cable for parking brake was snapped/rusted apart....PLEASE help me i need my truck tomorrow and it's already dark...
by the way; drums are 9"
