F250 ADJUST EMERGENCY BRAKE CABLES?

2001 Ford F-250

Brakes problem
2001 Ford F250 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 98,000 miles

How do I adjust the emergency brake cables? When the emergency brakes are applied The truck is put into gear the truck roles as if I have no breaks at all

All the break pads have been done recently.

If there is an adjustment where are they located or what has to be done to correct this problem?

PARKING BRAKE
Parking Brake Shoe Adjustment (Expedition, Excursion, Explorer, Explorer Sport, Explorer Sport-Trac, Mountaineer & Super Duty Pickup)
NOTE: On all models except Excursion, Escape, Explorer, Explorer Sport, Explorer Sport-Trac, Mountaineer and Super Duty Pickup, parking brake system is self-adjusting and does not require adjustment.

Using Brake Adjustment Gauge (D81L-1103-A), measure inside diameter of drum portion of rear disc brake rotor. On Excursion and Super Duty Pickup, using parking brake adjuster screw, adjust parking brake shoe and lining until they drag against parking brake drum. On all other models, adjust parking brake shoe and lining to.020" (.508 mm) less than drum measurement.
