Hi, When going to 1st then 2nd while under way the hand brake lever eases back from all the way forward and I have to ease it forward again in order to get maximum power in 2nd. What can I do to make that stop?
Balto my new used dog had a great time taking my son to school this morning. He loves riding in my T.
Brake rods too long.
Balto is a noble name for a dog ! I reckon Jim solved your problem. How are things going, "Nacho" ? Good to see your post ! ; )
How are the teeth on the quadrant?
The service manual has a procedure for adjusting the length of the brake rods, but I used a different procedure, called out in this thread:
Will try to adjust the length of the break rods. How do I check the teeth on the quadrant? What/where is the quadrant?
Here is more on sharpening the teeth or replacing the quadrant.
The teeth on the quadrant only hold the lever when it is pulled back. Do not hold when the lever is in high gear.
I think the quadrant does hold in high if the spring is working correctly. The teeth are not one way but work both ways. There is more tension when pulled back but there should be enough tension when the lever is in high to require the handle to be squeezed in order to avoid the teeth and the ratchet from rubbing.
