September 12, 2009Hey, im kinda a newb when it comes to drum brakes. I recently put new ebrake cables and shoes on the rear of my 84 K5. Now i have little to no back brakes whatsoever. I popped the drums apart again and noticed a lil wear on the shoes, so i set them up to where they are pretty much dragging and noticed no change at all. However i noticed one of the wheel cylinders had leaked a bit.
when i push the ebrake pedal to the floor, i can pull the cable another couple inches till it stops moving. When i replaced the cables i only changed the tWo that go from the axle to the joiner.
Am I missing something here? I am just kind of confused to all this.
Any help appreciated
