When utilising a drum brake system, allowances have to be made for the gradual wearing down of the brake lining. Whilst a point will eventually be reached at which the drum and/or shoe have to be replaced, a lower level of wear can be dealt with by an automatic self adjusting system.

The adjusting system works in a way which takes account of the greater distance which has to be travelled by the shoes as the surfaces become thinner. By moving through a small gear one tooth at a time, it ensures that the ‘at rest’ position of the shoe is closer to the drum that it was, thus reducing the hydraulic pressure and fluid needed to bring them together.

Replacing any worn or damaged adjuster parts will maximise the efficiency and safety of your braking system.
