Rear Hydraulic Drum Brake

ADJUSTING REAR BRAKE SHOES (Figure 2-61)

Raise rear wheel so it can be turned freely by hand. Brakes are adjusted by means of two adjusting cams located on outside of brake side cover. Turn front adjusting cam nut (1) counterclockwise until wheel has noticeable drag. Spin wheel forward and backward to center shoes. Slowly turn cam nut clockwise until wheel turns freely. Repeat process on rear cam nut (2) which spreads shoes with a clockwise rotation and retracts shoes with a counterclockwise rotation.

ADJUSTING REAR BRAKE PEDAL - FL (Figure 2-62)

Work brake pedal (1) back and forth by hand to determine free play before push rod contacts piston in master cylinder. Free play of push rod should be approximately 1/16 in. Adjustment is made by loosening master cylinder rear bolt (4) and brake pedal stop plate bolt (2). Move front end of plate (3) down to decrease free play, or up to increase free play.
