Park brake hanging up.


Recommended Posts

First I would block wheels, have air tanks full. Then release parking brake, crawl under truck and see if slack adjuster is in full retract position, you can check other slacks to compare travel, if not retracted, see if s-cam is holding it from moving. 

Just a start of things to check but do this first.

Before we put the fenders and body on the back, at least one wheel would lock up and be difficult to break loose. Since we put the fenders and body on the back plus a piece of 4x8 plywood covering the wheels (radiused to fit under fender lip) and keeping rain and moisture out of the wheels and brakes, we do not have lockups an more.
