1. Service brake adjustment must be accurate before making parking brake adjustment. Fully release parking brake, and allow slack in rear cable to prevent brake shoe drag.
2. Adjust turnbuckle for 2WD models (turn adjusting nut on equalizer for 4WD models) to obtain a brake lever stroke of 16 17 notches with a 66 lbs. (29.9 kg) setting force.
3. On 2WD models, balancer must be parallel with center line of vehicle. On 4WD models, the equalizer and joint must be at right angles to each other.
