Re: girling or bendix?

Thanks very much. I got the new handbrake adjusted after taking both shoes fully apart and cleaning them.

i know i have moved the adjuster bolt and think ive put them back roughly where they were originally.

It my haynes manual it says to after adjusting the handbrake to then tighten the lock nut on the shoe adjuster fully?

How do i do this if i cant turn the lock ring without applying a little brake?

I think i know the answer. If i get an assistant to apply a little brake should i then tighten the lock ring just shy of the maximum. Relive pressure from the brake and just adjust accordingly until the lock ring sits abit infront of the shoes being fully contracted.

Thanks in advance
