. then need a screwdriver and (below) snap off the tiny spring season fingers that secure the cable toward support dish.
I obtained this part, in addition to the back cables at NAPA, but the parts man will state truly noted only for 73-87 1/2 tons. The 67-72 1/2 lot drum braking system section all are alike, so don’t be concerned. The first 1970 pub are found above for assessment.
Subsequent, you’ve got to replace leading wire. Start by backing-off the equalizer fan. In the event the wiring just weren’t froze up, I would advise beginning right here; but if they are rusted solid as mine had been, it generates no distinction. The crazy bring 1/2 inches houses, plus the other areas has houses for a wrench as you discover below:
Back once again the check nut off very first, it will cut-through the grime, and washed it well, then take away the adjuster addict. The existing peanuts will fit the posts from the new front cable tv if you opt to recycle all of them.
. found in the fender really getting the cable tv. The 69-72 cable will have an added video. Pull this video and.
Unclip the wire in which it passes through the framework right here. The wire are cut on the framework much like the backside cable tv comprise conducted with the braking system backing plates; you will need to snap off the small spring season hands with a screwdriver from inside area of the framework.
Above, this image of the new cable tv attached to the give lever set-up will simplify eliminating the upper cable tv from taxi. The feet lever attachment is similar. Merely cut the outdated cable near the shackle where it connects into lever, loosen the clamp bolt and every other clamps, and take it through opening from inside the firewall into the system area,
The shackle that attaches on the lever is simply too huge to endure the opening when you look at the firewall, then when setting up the newest cable (below) begin by threading this end through the firewall hole.
. to the system storage space and, routing it across the course for the original cable tv, into the hole when you look at the framework until.
Earlier, the following horizon. Note the latest springs. Since my cab is actually a 67, I decided to make use of the 67-68 give lever, the openings in my own firewall are already build because of this. Setting up the hands lever ended up being smooth, since ended up being modifying the brake system.
To regulate the 67-68 vehicle parking brake: Note, this service membership brakes need to be precisely adjusted before trying to adjust the parking braking system. First, pertain the hands brake lever 4 clicks from complete off, next adjust the changing addict until an average drag is sensed when spinning the trunk wheels. Release and check your brake are completely relaesed; or even readjust. Tighten the check fan up against the adjuster fan,
The only distinction between the 67-68 therefore the 69-72 cables could be the 69-72 cable was much longer
To modify the 69-72 parking brake: just like the 67-68 process except apply the feet brake 1 click from complete off.
In addition note within these photos you can find my personal brand-new dual exhaust system, basically superior to the ratty outdated unmarried set-up I had earlier.
The base visualize compares the 67-68 direction line cover with all the later on 69-72 kind
That is right!! unique shoes right around, brand new tubes, rebuilt all wheel cylinders, and new adjuster peanuts ahead, and the old front side adjuster crazy installed on a corner. I decided that’s the way I’m planning to deal with the adjusters at each braking system work. Check out images (sorry, I best grabbed pictures of this front);
