  • Emergency Brake Slop

    Happy New Years Eve Gentlemen, question for you. My emergency brake lever does not catch on the teeth easily. I have to fiddle with the lever to get a solid engagement. I think I can add a new solid pawl to the brake lever and replace the ratchet teeth on the transmission. How do I get piece off the transmission. Thank you!

    There's a screw that goes in this hole.

      You can enhance the engagement by sharpening those teeth up with a file.

            Happy New Year Guys, what do you think. This screw is not budging. Should I use an impact screw driver, or heat up the area with a torch or.. Thank you!

              I’m not a fan of putting a flame to parts or bodies. That is why I invested in the Inductor, a perfect job for it. With that being said soak it in evaporust or 911 then try the impact driver.

                I have taken a few apart and after fiddling around with various methods, I have reached for the torch. I don't have an induction heater, prolly should invest. I would take the tower it out of the car if you have to resort to the torch. I am sure there is muck in the tower that is going to stink up the place when you heat it up. Of course, you have to worry about catching something on fire with the flame as well.

                You are in this deep, might as well take a peek into the transmission.....

                  Clean it up really good and use PB Blaster let it soak tap on it spray again. Repeat a few times it will come loose don't rush and use the flame wrench .

                    i seem to remember clamping mine in the vice and using the impact driver.
                    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

                      Always appreciate the input on the forum. I got the bolt out, parts on order. Teeth missing on e-brake was not helping. It's so great when something goes right!

                        Impact driver did the trick?

                          Yes, that manual impact driver broke it loose enough for the battery operated impact driver to finish the job.

                            How well should the emergency brake hold? Would idling in first gear be enough to overcome an engaged emergency brake?

                            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.

                            Emergency brake lever problem
                            by Supergnat
                            I think I resolved my rear drum installation problems but now I have a new issue. The emergency brake lever (A-2642) on the RH (passenger) side is not tilted to the rear enough to allow the associated e-brake rod clevis pin to be inserted. The emergency brake lever (A-2643) LH (driver side) alignment is fine. I verified that I have the correct levers on each side. The emergency brake toggle levers...

                            by Leo
                            This part was on the chassis of my 1930 coupe when I bought it but I could not use it or determine what it was from. The lever has raised letters cast into it that appear to be N. F. C. O. 4

                            I'm in need of an emergency brake toggle link. Found I had a broken one during disassembly this morning.

                            by B.snow84
                            I have a 28 leatherback with the e brake by the cowl. Was wondering if there’s anyplace that sells the floorboards and the floor mat? How hard is it to convert to e brake by the shifter. I also think this model a is a rare one because it doesn’t have the e brake in the rear drums.

                            brake rods too short
                            by warren713
                            I recently acquired a 1915 "project" roadster and have a problem with the brake rods being too short to adjust the hand brake properly- brake lever only goes back, about half way to where it should rest and adjustments not possible - have replaced the brake pads and compared the position of the cam levers (on the rear hub) to my touring car and they appear to be tilted about 15-20 degrees...

                            Emergency brake installation mistake
                            by wayne1230cars
                            When I restored my ‘30 Tudor in 1993, I did a full brake job. Brakes worked well. The emergency brake worked ok as a parking brake. When I was relining the shoes this week I realized that I had installed the emergency brake bands backwards. So it only took me 28 years to figure out my mistake. I had pulled the drums multiple times but did not notice that the bands were installed wrong side out....
