How to Adjust the Brake Band

Post by Franknstein » Fri Nov 27, 2015 10:46 am

Is there an official method of how to adjust the brake band?

Other than doing it by feel, I was wondering if there are measurements or specs for brake band adjustment.
Thank you,

The service manuals have exactly what you're looking for. There is also a procedure posted here:

Brake Maintenance

That should be all you need.
