Hi

I have just finished rebuilding my Model T rear end. During the rebuild I took advantage of the fact that I had everything apart and replaced the bushings on the parking brake camshafts. One problem that I am having is that I didn't take a picture before I disassembled the pieces and now I can't remember what direction the lever goes on the camshaft. Does the lever arm point up or down?

Thanks

Bill

Hey Bill, lever arm points up. Make sure before you install anything that you have the left and right sides correct, because the camshafts are drilled differently. When you go to install the lever arm it should be up and tilted towards the rear of the car when the cam is flat.

Also, the point on the cams go towards the front of the car.

Before you button everything up, take a look at your brake cams to see if they are two-piece repro ones like the ones in this thread:

Hi

Another question. Does the parking brake camshaft use a grease cup or an oiler?

Regards

Bill

It has an oiler.
