The brake shoe on the rear driver side on my coupe is missing the lever for the parking brake. I didn't notice this when I rebuilt the brake a while back. It wasn't an issue then because the PO had removed much of the parking brake assembly.
The cable was just tied up under the car. When I removed the drum to see if I could start fixing this mess, I noticed there is no place to hook up the end of the cable. The passenger side shoe has the lever and I hooked it up, but I don't recall removing a lever from the shoe on the driver side.
If any of this makes sense and you can offer any advice, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

If I recall correctly, when you buy a set of shoes you get 2 primary and 2 secondary shoes. You have to transfer your e-brake bracket from the old to the new shoe. Either:

a. You forgot to transfer it or
b. You put two primary shoes on one side and two secondary shoes on the other.

b would be the better situation because at least you know where the bracket is.

a would be the most probable!

:D

Don't know where you would find the lever, except possibly a junk yard.

That kinda sounds familiar. I still don't remember exactly, but I'd be willing to bet the idiot PO lost the bracket. Thanks, Frank.
