    Thumbs upGM Rear caliper/parking brake setup

    Hi,

    I've put a Speedway GM caliper/disc/emergency brake combo on my 9" rear and found this nugget of info to getting a good pedal and handbrake.

    https://www.speedwaymotors.com/images/pdf/910-31046.pdf

    Never heard of 'gravity' bleeding brakes before!?

    I ignored the instructions and just bled them normally.
    One caliper is perfect but the other must be sticking/got air as it seems to be pulling piston back in a smidge after pedal is released !?
    So I'm off out to follow their instructions

    cheers
    KJ

    Thumbs upUpdate

    Found this other helpful link courtesy of Mr Plumpcars postings on another thread.

    It has another way to adjust the GM handbrake caliper.
    I did get the brakes adjusted right up originally, but they aint self adjusting like they should.
    Retried the first way but to no avail so will give it a go...
