    Default 8.8 brake cables again

    I've tightened the adjustment nut down as far as it goes, but it's still not tight enough to engage the ebrake. Ideas?

    Let me ask the stupid questions.

    1. Have you made sure the cable actually moves while someone else pulls the ebrake handle.

    2. Have you pulled the drums off to see what kind of condition the brakes and or cables are in (5 minute job)

    3. After inspection of the brake shoes make sure the star adjuster in the brake drum are actually adjusted, if not start there.

    Hope this helps and let me know what you come up with.
