Hello all... About 2 years ago, i replaced all of the parking brake cables on my 96 f250. (old ones were rusted out.) Also replaced the rear brakes. Worked well for about a month, then the parking brake quit working again. Didnt worry about it for a while, but launching a boat is a little harry without the parking brake. So today pulled off the driver side drum. The parking brake lever was hitting the hub and cutting into it. It looks like the top of the lever popped up over the one shoe instead of being in between them. Also looks like my cables are in pretty bad shape again (only 2 years old.) At any rate, would like to fix this, but Im not an expert with drum brakes and don't want this to happen again. Any ideas on what would cause the parking brake lever to do that?
