The stock parking brake no longer locks when I depress the pedal.
Since I often park on an incline, that creates certain problems. So, I
1. Is there a way to adjust the parking brake latching mechanism
itself? (I have adjusted the cables)
2. Is there a way to refurbish the parking brake latching mechanism?
I am not a machinist nor do I have access to a machine shop. I have
simple hand tools at this time, and a little patience.
3. Is there an after market source for "unworn" parking brake parts?
4. If there is no answer to the first 3 questions, then is there a
way I can adapt a later ratchet-style parking brake assembly to pull the
stock cables. I saw a recent article on an installation of more recent
parking brake assemblies in the 55-2 through 59 trucks, but have not
seen such for the AD trucks.
Any help is appreciated.
