Brake adjustment - preferred method

Raise the wheel to be adjusted off the ground so it rotates freely. Turn the slack adjustment mechanism until the wheel stops. Back off the adjustment until the wheel turns freely. This would be about one-quarter to one-half of a turn.

This method will result in the shortest possible stroke without the brakes dragging. Check push rod travel after adjustment.
