I'm seeing parking brakes that springs are gone, rotted thru, brake linings completely delaminated. I also see that virtually all, hinged actuator levers are seized at the hinge pin. This is designed so when the cable pulls on the end outside, it pushes the leading shoe into the " hat inside if the rotor ( a de facto brake drum ). Once shoe stops traveling foreword as it contacts that surface, the lever hinges pushing out the trailing shoe.
Trust me, when that puppy stops hinging, binding, shoes delaminate, springs rot,,,that's it Jack...It can drag HARD!! or make a no go sitcheation.
