    advice please, ZS Diesel has drums on the rear, just failed MOT on poor handbrake, fitted new Shoes and adjust cable, handbrake still poor!

    Should I now put Drums on as well?

    Have you checked seals on cylinder is working fine, without leaks and springs are not sized, on drum brake shoes?

    Thank you, both i just started again, I think I did not make handbrake cable slack enough to start with! At least that's all I can really put it down to! Live and learn, have not fitted brake shoes since I was under 20...... almost 10 years ago :laugh:

    If everything works now, that is the most important thing. Everything else is learning path we are all passing each time we are working.
