How to Properly Adjust 3,500 lb Hydraulic Brake Kit for Installation


I have installed these and they are great other than having to do some modification grinding on a little area where the weld from the axle to the backing plate interfered with getting the nuts on. The ones I took off had a tag that stated Tighten adjusters until wheel locks, then back off 10 clicks Does that apply to these as well?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the best way to tighten your Hydraulic Brake Kit # AKFBBRK-35-D is to use the Brake Adjustment Spoon # W80630 at the plug in the back until you can't turn the hub/drum by hand and then back it off 10 clicks.
