drum brake assembly, Gen1

drum brake assembly, Gen1

Postby M_a_t_t [OP] » January 28th 2019, 5:20pm

I had problems with my parking brake a few years ago and pulled out a strut with a spring on it as well as disconnecting the cable. I am now trying to put the strut back in, but I can't figure out where it goes. Its not on the diagram in my FSM. And I can't find mention of it anywhere. There is a smaller one already in the assembly, but this one is larger. It has to be for the van because I remember taking a strut out and I haven't done drums on anything else. :think:

Does anyone recognize the larger one?:
98004


Edit: After a shoptalk with MarkMitch we decided it wasn't for the van, but does anyone know what it came from?

It felt like the rear wheels were locking up, so I took it apart. The wheel cylinder was loose, the rubber plug was missing and the adjuster was frozen. Hopefully when I get to the other side It will take care of the problem completely. It seems better already, but that might be placebo and/or road conditions.
