2004 f150 e brake cable system

Hi all,

I'm looking for a reference picture, or photo, of the 2004 F150 parking brake cable system, particularly in the rear, near but before, the wheels.

I was suspicious of the brakes locking up because of rust, but they look fine.

I inspected the parking brake cables going to the rear wheels and saw an apparatus that is sometimes described as an equalizer - - - a gadget that divides the force from the front foot pedal cable equally to each of the 2 rear wheel brake cables. It didn't look like what I imagine an equalizer to look like, but I don't know what it's really supposed to look like.

I noticed that some forum members have diagrams of vehicle equipment and was hoping that there might be one for this "equalizer"?

Thanx for any reference/advice.

Regards...

The E-brake on these trucks are similar to a drum brake. You may want to pull the rear wheels and rotors, then look at the E-brake drum pads, adjustors, and springs.
