    Hmmmm. Ok. So I think we decided you have it well adjusted at the drum. If the 2nd gen is identical to the 3rd gen the only other adjustment is at the handle. It's under the console. If that doesn't do it you may have stretched the cables beyond their abilities or something is wrong in the assembly.

    As long as the rears are adjusted right (slight drag when spinning), it's a nut adjuster in the center console to take up the stretch in the cable. I think Toyota is 5 clicks for your target so you'll just want to adjust it until that's enough to hold the truck in place. From there just make sure there's no tension on the parking brake cable when the lever is down and you're good to go.

    No complaints, it was a year and a half ago ago (25k miles) , parts plus labor (110 per hour). I didnt go with Nitro, I went with yukon. If I remember correctly they were comparable to ecgs at the time, the benefit for me is they arent 4 hours from me like ecgs. They also have a 1 year warranty.

    So, fun fact, I adjusted the center and the ebrake doesn't go down as far or as easily anymore.......but still does nothing

    When you say nothing, does it not tension it at all or just not enough? If you max out the adjuster you might have cable stretch beyond what you can compensate for.

    Are you adjusting it at the drums AND the lever (Mid Point)?

    Viair 450C is what I've had after my 88P took a shit (it really doesn't like more than car tires). Not as fast as the dual ARB but much cheaper and since it can run an hour straight, it still gets the job done for multiple vehicles. Only reason I'm replacing it is it takes forever with 35's but it'll be a good backup for my new powertank setup.

    If I were doing it again, I'd do a twin 485C Gen 2 hard mounted.

    I have 2 of the Masterflo MF-1050’s. 1 in the heep and the other at the house.

    Originally bought the one to use on the trail (stays in the jeep) till something else better came along. Slow but works. Then picked up another for the house, for the rest of the vehicles.

    it does the job. The bag isn’t wort a damn tho.

    edit: had them both for a good 10+ years.

    I wasn't working on it yesterday. Yesterday was a brew day. My registration will expire soon if I don't pass an inspection so I'm leaning towards potentially having a shop look at it. Do my drums and pads and get my e-brake working. Unless someone has a better suggestion.

    My rear brakes have never worked right since I first did them. Fucking full conversion worked first time no issues but brakes don't. Lmao

    Where do you typically go? We’ve a house in Colington but my gf turned me onto Frisco (where we are as I type lol). We also usually go around Memorial Day but alas,
    COVID.

    May hit up Corolla next week since I won’t need a permit for parking/driving on the beach.

    I was in corolla all week, my first time there actually. It’s nice and a good time since I think the permit goes away after tomorrow, right? We only drove on the beach, didn’t stop since we needed the permit and I was the only one out of like 9 people with a 4x4 haha. I wasn’t about to shuttle people. We were less than a mile from the entrance to the 4x4 beach, I’m a fan of the area.
