Adjusting a Self-Adjusting Brake Assembly on 8K Axle to Easily Remove Drum


Had brake lockup on one wheel of trailer . How do I back off self adjusting brake, shoe is to tight against drum to pull drum off 8k electric self adjusting drum brake


Expert Reply:

The Self-adjusting Brake Assemblies like # AKEBRK-8 still have a manual adjuster to allow you to relieve that brake shoe pressure. You simply remove the plug on the back of the assembly and adjust the manual dial using a small screwdriver or brake adjuster spoon like # W80630. I've attached a video to assist.
