e brake

How do you determine whether or not the e brke is holding well enough? Had oil on pads from wheel seal leaking. Fixed now but I only sanded the pads. I can put it in gear and it wont move. But will move if i step on the throttle.
thx

use some break cleaner on the shoes and housing to get that oil off and for a test, put the ebreak on and give it some gas to see how well it holds.

will be a pain to remove the hubs to do it again. i will if i have to. I would change the pads if i go that far.
Dumb idea, but think I could spray some cleaner thru the adjusting hole and let it swirl around when i drive? Might make it weorse..

Use them while moving a couple times . Dont lock them up and dont park for a few minutes afterwards..(the moving air helps to prevent a fire) If done properly the oil residue will quickly vaporize.
Emergency flashers might help you from getting rearended.

i need to get the truck thru safety inspection. I just got it for my wifes horse trailer.
I tightened it(adjust) last nite. Seems to not hold well enough. I did axle seals when I got it(leaking). It holds now when in drive after the adjust, before it did not. Not sure if it holds to 1200rpm. Will check when she gets home. I tightened it pretty well. i did not overly crank on the adjusters. maybe it rubeed a bit on her way to work and the heat dried it a bit.
