    Anyone have a PICTURE of a rear brake assembly for above?

    I screwed something up, adjusters don't seem right and adjuster slot is way off

    It mat be that someone put the wrong backing plates or entire rear end on this truck because something just ain't right

    I'm stupid but not dumb :gunsfiring:

    These trucks used both single and duel servo brakes. Here's an exploded view of each...both images are of the driver side:

    Actuator lever goes on the outboard side of the star wheel. :nod:

    I still have a problem

    I can't figure out how self adjuster goes back together. Why does actuator not touch adjusting star?

    Anyone have a step b y step for reinstalling self adjuster assembly

    Does small tab on actuator sit inboard in the notch of the adjuster fork

    Does the actuator retainer spring attach inside or outside of spring

    Bottom line, actuator does not touch adjuster by 1/2 " when assembled

    By your description I can tell you working with the single servo style brakes Tom, and I don't have a truck here with the single servo brakes in order to take an actual pic for you.

    But you can take a few good, clear, and detailed pix of how you have it assembled currently and email them to me if you want me to look them over. Best I can do..
