Well, I can't even seem to figure out how to get the rear brake drums off.
What is worse, there doesn't seem to be any kind of a hole on the backing plate to put the cable through. The cable doesn't quite reach the equalizer, though it might if I loosened the adjustment nut, looking at the diagramhttp://www.fordification.com/tech/image ... rake01.jpg
It seems like it might need connectors 2A790 and extensions 2793
How do I get the drum off, and please tell me it doesn't involving removing the axle shaft?
The axle code is B4, which is: 4.10 - 5200# Dana 60 Limited Slip according to the reference.
Here are some pictures:
Not sure where to go from here. The truck definitely came with a rear parking brake. The old snapped off ends of the cables were still attached to the equalizer and routed through the cross-member. They'd been snipped a few inches past that.
All I can think is that maybe when the previous owner couldn't find the replacement cables he switched the backing plates to those of a Dana 60 that had no parking brake.
That or this isn't the original axle, and it's not capable of accepting and paring brake, and that's why the original ones were snipped.
Any ideas? I'd really like this truck to have a parking brake.
