Handbrake

I have an AUIII Forte.

I was changing over my handbrake to a Fairmont Ghia, leather one.

The wire supplied on the Fairmont one was too small, so i used the original wire that was already there. So i switched em over, and bolted everything down.

Now the handbrake is just a little bit on, when the handle is all the way down. I have the nut on the handbrake at the lightest possible to give it more slack in the line.

Anyone got n e ideas?

Re: Handbrake

It's all good, mechanic fixed it.

The brake bindings had to be adjusted.
