D17 Brakes

Have been working to restore a 66 D17 IV. One brake rod was broke at the bend where it goes into the pedal "bell-crank". The other one I just turned a few more threads onto the end that goes into the housing to get some more adj. One thing that struck me as odd is that both rods had been inserted (& cotter-pinned) into the hole that is nearest the large brake pivot shaft, effectively giving a big increase to the force of the pedal. The return spring is in the other hole away from the shaft. Is this correct? Seems that it the opposite would be the right way. The way it is now, it's no surprise the rod was broke. Gatz

I am not familair with D-17 Brakes, but I think what will help you is a manual. It will answer this and other questions that you have or will come up.
