Size:  4.7 KB here you can see the bolt holes. (3 - 13 mm nuts at two different angles.)


I adjusted the ebrake today. Chilton says there is a adjustm,ent hole in the back of the the rear wheel drum plate. It does not exist on my car. I adjusted them by removing the drum, reassembling and testing the ease of rotation and then soing it again if necessary.

Kris, while you're in that area working on the e-brake, follow the e-brake cable under the carpet to the point where it exits the floor pan (if you haven't already).

I had a look at my '94 SE yesterday, and it looks like i"m definitely taking in water through that juncture and I need to seal it up. There was already some unpleasant corrosion and flaky rust. (the right side was ok).

Good news was it hadn't gotten to the ground buss yet or compromised the seat frame bolts.

(BTW, even though your pics are small, I can see what you're getting at, even with my old eyes. You're going to be a terror once you get a dig camera/computer outfit to work with )

Used a garden hose and nozzle all over. Only water I could get in was at the e-brake portal in the floor pan.

(On the other hand the lateral seam you mentioned is rusty. I suspect, as you say, it may be leaking, or even just seeping very slowly and I can't force it with just the hose. [Unless water is wicking up the carpet to the seam.] At any rate, both areas will get resealed. Thanks for the tip!).

Kris, I apologize for hijacking and off-topic-ing your thread. But I have worked on a few blankety-blank e-brakes, and the job isn't done until you've gone all the way from the foot or hand arm all the way back to where the cables do there job on the rear brakes. Knowing your devotion to your '94, I suspect you've probably done it mostly by now. But I thought I'd just throw that little oddball item in.

Nice job on the e-brake arm. I use up a lot of band-aids too .

Our '94 spent most of it'* life in Minneapolis, so -- yes, lot'* of salt. (I tried to do some pics, but seemed to get them upside down and backwards. Haven't yet mastered the editing techniques in photobucket. Maybe later).

I've only looked from the inside and not from the bottom (just leaving on a trip and don't want to get my Tee all dirty again )
