E Brake Problem.....

Sooooo I posted this like 2 weeks ago on the 6.0 drivetrain problems and nothing....so figured I'd ask over here....my 06 Dually E Brake doesn't work....not even remotely. E Brake Pedal goes to the floor and doesn't hold the truck at all. Any ideas or how do I correctly adjust it?

There is a place to adjust it on the rear backing plates. They adjust just like old time shoe brakes, because they ARE old time shoe brakes, in the center of the disc drums. Just raise the rear and spoon them until they drag.

I very much doubt that it's an adjustment issue if there is no resistance in the e-brake pedal at all. Best bet is to have someone depress, then release the cable while looking under the truck and making sure the cable operates from front to back without damage. If that all checks out, pull the wheels and rotors-the inside of the rotor is machined, basically acting as a small drum on which the e-brake shoes press. The e-brake shoes are cheap enough, replace them and the hardware if needed.

There is some resistance when depressing the pedal but it does nothing at the back....it wont even attempt to hold the truck.....I was just curious how they adjusted. Thanks.
