Very true, on both accounts.
One wheel down one to go tomorrow and then the front brakes and suspension will be done-minus the sway bar. I put self adjusters on both fronts and eventually the rears as well. Question, I bought a new tank from Auto city classics and it is a bit smaller dimensionallly than my original. Is there supposed to be this much slack in the straps or should they be tight all the way around. At this point I am planning on adding some rubber to take up the slack.
I’d be tempted to cinch it up somehow. Wouldn’t want a lot of play with road bumps and filler neck, etc.
Looking at your brake setup, it appears that both shoes are identical. There should be a short shoe and a long shoe, with the short shoe facing the front of the car. Maybe you want to check the other pair of the set. By short and long shoes, I mean the lining material, not the metal holding it.
Old Fox, you are correct and I asked at NAPA where I got them and he said that is how they are making them now. Now I have to figure out if i have the adjusting set up on the correct shoe? I have them on both front shoes but can't remember if they go there or back shoe.
Your picture is correct. The star wheel should be in front of the punch hole in the backing plate.
And remember for adjusters that one side has normal threads, the other side has reversed threads. If you install them on the wrong side it will loosen the pads instead of tightening.
