Brake Shoe Adjuster


Recommended Posts

The question is which bracket goes on what side.
I recently found that my adjusting brackets were installed back the front. The larger one in the photo for Brake Shoe Adjuster Kit - AAU8994 on Rimmers web site.

Now I think they may also be on the wrong side.
The retailers of these don't seem to know what goes where. My books don't cover it as they were a late in range feature.

They are marked with the numbers:-

3134-851 which is on the near side on my car and

3134-850 which is on the off side.

So! is this correct or were they back the front and arse about?
Any help appreciated.

Hmm... the parts in question don't look like they're handed. I've certainly seen them installed backwards (on three of the four cars I've owned with those brakes) but I don't recall swapping side-to-side. As long as the ratchet teeth are correctly matched and the right way up then it should work.
