Re: Can't get the drum back on??!!!
Many lazey mechanics tighten the handbrake cable when the handbrake travel becomes excessive when in fact they should check the self-adjusters inside the drum. Check the handbrake mechanism inside the drums are sitting against their stops.
In 99% of cases there is no need to adjust the handbrake cables in their lifetime as long as the self-adjustment mechanism is in good working order.
