Try a search on tightening the parking brake. There is a bracket that connects the left and right rear brake lines to the single line going to the lever. It has an adjusting nut on it, and that creates the tension you need.

Yesterday, I picked up a used Dana 35 with 4.10 gears, a lock-right (needs springs), and a rockcrusher diff cover. Not a bad buy for $275.

We got a nice dose of 5-6 inches. It has stuck well, since the temp hasn't gone over 15 degrees.

Making the JKS disconnected mount was easy, but here are pics of the install for those who don't know.

After finding the right tap size for the JKS provided screw, use the drill bit with that tap. (Mine was 1/4 x 20)



Then insert the tap and turn it with a tap wrench or a crescent wrench. Make sure to push in, because the tap won't 'grab' very well otherwise.



Then use the hex cap screw to attach the mount.



Nothing spectacular, but it's better than a strap.

It is time to start turning BOTH the rear wheels.

I will finally be installing the rear powertrax in the heep sometime soon. Stay tuned.

You'll love it! Make sure you get a GOOD 1/4" point wrench to get the cross pin out - I don't recall if it's a 6 or 12 point. Good time to inspect and replace the wheel bearings!
