Parking brake contraption question


Recommended Posts

I was under my '64 Avanti today looking for potential rattles and leaks and noticed that the washer on this stud was completely loose. It seems to me that this is part of the parking brake assembly and that the nut and washer should be snugged up to the front end of the bracket to keep the wires tensioned correctly. Am I wrong?

Looks right. Both nuts should be tight to the yoke and in the correct position when you can set the emergency brake before it reaches the limit of it's pull.
