Rear brakes

Post by holte999 » Thu Mar 13, 2014 5:28 pm

Got a problem with the handbrake on Indian Chief, before I have a look, where can I get rear shoes and cylinders, part numbers or alternatives etc ? Many Thanks.

Maybe silly question, but you say you have a problem with the handbrake, and then ask about "rear shoes" and "cylinders", is your handbrake on the rear, or on the drive shaft , because if its on the driveshaft chances are the cables just crudded up, mine didn't work last week and after freeing the cable and greasing (nipple mid cable) it works a treat !
