I messed around with my old truck this weekend.
The parking brake isn't working, so I looked up a picture in my manual. Only one of the parts in this picture, the equalizer lever, is included with my truck.
So I fabricated my own version. Guess which piece is original!
The parking brake still didn't work, so I pulled off the rear wheels and drums to take a look.
I forgot to take a picture, but none of the parking brake parts are inside of the drum lol. The cables are just hanging out in there! Damn. I suppose I have some hunting to do.
I got back to the VW and started working on some shift linkage parts. I'm still waiting on the material to finish it, but I started turning the mounting points for the rod ends. I'm replacing all of the stock plastic ball and socket joints with rod ends and spherical bearings.
