finally got the new drive train in and drove it... realized the break peddle almost reaches the floor before it slows down. I also had problems with the e-break, but i've been told the way to adjust that is running the truck in reverse and hitting the break... I did just replace the rear breaks (shoes, springs, drums). Any ideas why the peddle goes so far before I'm stopping???

Thanks guys...

Jack up the wheel you'll be adjusting. That little rubber plug on the backing plate, remove it, see the star wheel there, with a screw driver or brake adjusting tool turn it down till you cain't turn the wheel then back off just enough to turn the wheel, then do the other one. Ebrake should be OK then. Still soft brakes ? bleed the air out of them starting at the right rear. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif
