You have to loosen the brass adjuster to move the brake shoes away from the drum. The shoes have cut into the drum and left a small lip in the lining. Loosening the shoes will help give you some clearence.Trying to check the linings on the parking brake as braking effort low. Swung the caliper out of the way, removed the two locating screws but cannot get the disc of the hub. The road wheel is free to turn so there is no binding. Can you free off the brass adjuster which I can see through one of the aperatures in the disc or could I have some other problem.
Regarding cable adjustement the threaded rod on the underside near the brake lever has sheared at sometime and some clown has welded the forward end of the outer cable sheath where it protrudes through the floor mounted bracket that holds the cable. What can I do?
I can't help with the second issue because I am having a hard time understanding.
