9 inch disk handbrake adjustment

the cable is tight so b4 ppl say adjust it its done.

Problem is the lever that the handbrake cable connects to on the caliper is all the way forwards there is no more movement. I cant cant turn wheel when off the ground but as soon as i take it on to my driveway with a slope pull handbrake on and the car rolls on to the road.

is there something inside the caliper that could be stuffed of adjusted just seems even thou the lever is full up on caliper thats theres not enuff clamping force to hold disc?????

Re: 9 inch disk handbrake adjustment

get ur callapers kitted then thay be like new.

check that the cable is actualy pulling on both callipers.
check that on the back of the calliper the handbrake lever is touching the stop when the handbrake is not on.
check by pulling on the cable on the calliper that the wheel dose stop & the calliper is not sezed.

the hadn brake works a screw & the calliper has a nut like device in side it as u pull on the lever is screws the piston out.
