        This little tool I bought from HF has been a great help in that pesky little spring.

            Installing new brake shoes
            by Steve Plucker
            Have removed the rear brake shoes from the rear brake system BUT left the emergency brake carrier plate intact.

            Now I want to install the rear brake shoes (with new pads) and find that it is going to be a not so fun job.

            Is there any special tools or tricks that one should know about to accomplish this task?

            It probably would be better to remove the emergency...

            Service brake actuation arm question
            by Mickey
            Looking from behind the vehicle does the clevis connection end of the arm face outward or inward? If inward then the connecting rod will have to be bent to connec OR the arm is on backwards.

            Emergency brake or hand brake
            by Bob C
            While going through the parts book trying to identify some brake rods I noticed Ford changed the name three times.
            A-2853-AR Rod, emergency brake lever to cross shaft 1928-29.
            A-2856-D Rod, emergency hand brake lever to cross shaft 1930-31.
            A-2853-E Rod, hand brake lever to cross shaft assembly 1931.

            LH parking brake lever parts diagram
            by thom
            Can someone post or link me to a parts diagram of an early '28 left mounted park brake handle? I'm trying to make a spring work in mine and so far have not figured out how. The rod going down to the pawl is still spring loaded, but the squeeze handle is floppy.

            Pay Attention to Details
            by Tom Wesenberg
            This is what happens when you don't pay attention to details. Someone used a thin E clip, rather than the correct thicker U clip to secure the parking brake lever to the brake shoe. They also left out the wavy washer between the two parts, and this left the parking brake lever loose enough so the cable spring pushed it outward, where it rode against the brake drum. One wear spot is where the cable...
