i have a 93 mustang gt and there seems to be no adjustment for my parking brake and the parking brake doesnt hold the car AT ALL. any comments?
You said the rear shoes are good, but are they adjusted properly? The way the spring is setup in the handle it has a ratchet style adjuster. You can see the spur gear that the handle locks to. As the cable stretches it will move a tooth or so down on the gear.
Now if you haven't adjusted the rear brakes you need to do that. On the backside of the hub behind the drum is a little rubber plug, pull the plug off and use the appropriate brake tool to spin the star wheel in there. Tighten it so that you cant spin the tire by hand and then back off with the star wheel a tiny bit so that you can spin the tire. Then put the plug back in.
Hope this helps.
