    If you look under your truck there is a cable coming from both rear brake drums at about a 45 degree angle to the middle. Then a lever assembly and a cable going to the cab. The lever assembly should have a bolt and nut and you can tighten the nut and it will make your handle harder to pull. About 12 clicks is what you should have before you can't pull any more. Page "BR-8" in the fsm.
