Do you have the parking brakes adjusted the right way?

Did you adjust them tighter instead of slackening them?

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

What do you mean "right way"? Brake hardware is new, adjuster/star wheels are about 1-2 turns from tight against and cables are installed and hanging. They just won't meet up with the front cable?

Thanks,

So have you solved this issue? I am struggling also, although last night it woke me and I thought wonder if the peddle has a release and from this forum it apparently does so will be searching for that today.
