One of the side effects of transforming the cab has been a lack of space to house a parking brake lever. So looking about I’ve found an electronic one from a jag xf. I’ve cut the end off the cable and swaged on a stainless mini fork.
Couple of brackets later and job done
Tested using a few fuses and it looks like 7.5v is the magic number. Now off looking for 12v auto reset circuit breaker
Having not dealt with drum brakes before this is all a bit new but how hard can it be?
2 of 3/8 -24UNF bolts in the drum pull it off. would have been good to slack of the pads first, but it works anyway.
Managed to lift the pads out off the cylinders which allowed me to get at the smaller springs that go from pad to pad. Recording here they go back in the middle hole. With those off the larger springs become accessible, those that go from the hub to the pad. Got them off too
Does anyone know what the breather pipe is for? Seems pointless.
Now a quick wash
I managed to buy a full Hydraulic Superwinch H14W solution second hand from a utilities Landrover Defender.
I’ve started to refurbish it
For some reason the outside seal has a 1.5″ gap in it. I have ordered new ones for both sides
