I was trying to adjust my parking brake on a 1990 Ford F-150 Pickup
Truck. 4WD 302 eng, manual trans. I broke off the threaded shaft
that does the adjusting. This is the part that all three cables
connect to, and adjusts the tightness. I was just looking online on
some of the parts stores to see the price and who has them, and I am
not sure what this part is called. I'd assume something like parking
brake adjuster, but that dont get any results. Can someone tell me
the correct name for this part.
Not on this one. Each cable has a small ball on the end and snaps
into slots on this thing. I removed all the cables and took this in
the garage, out it in a vice and got it real hot. It still snapped.
If need be, I can probably grind off the rivet and make something from
threaded rod, but it's probably easier to just buy a new one (if it
can be gotten). I'll try "equalizer".
Thanks to everyone.
