STRUCTURE AND OPERATION
9. Rear Drum Brake
The rear drum brake is of a dual 2- leading type.
Double-acting wheel cylinders activate brake shoes, both as a leading shoe, in forward- and rearward-travel brak- ing. By self-boosting effect, the dual 2-leading shoe brake generates a great stopping power.
9.1 Wheel cylinder
The wheel cylinder is equipped with a self-adjusting mechanism to compen- sate for lining wear and maintain the correct clearance between the lining and the drum. The adjustment is made each time braking is performed.
The self-adjusting mechanism ates in the same manner as that front drum brake.
