I have a 2001 Ranger 4x4 off road w/ 10" drums and I'm having trouble getting the brakes back together. Both sides had the self adjusting cable broken which didn't give me an idea where the bottom springs attach to, as they broke and flying around in the drum. Does anyone know where I can find a diagram of the brake drum assembly? I looked through the forum here and found a good thread but the links weren't working.
I have that photo in my manual but that manual only goes to 2000 must have changed the drum brakes in 2001. My dad took all the springs off before I could take a picture or at least be there to see where all the springs go, thanks my delima. Need to know how the self adjuster operates, but having a hard time with broken parts and bad luck.
Have you seen this from the tech info stickie section. It is not your vintage, but I think there have not been any changes to the fundamentals of rear drum brakes and it should apply to your model. The self adjuster simply rotates to index and expand the adjusting screw as the shoes wear.
