I have a 1988 Mini Jet Black.
My problem is that when I pull the handbrake, the driver's side rear drum locks fine but the passenger side rear drum is not locking at all.
What I have done so far is replaced the brake shoes and the actuators, the latter of which had previously seized.
I have also adjusted the shoes to try to get them to function evenly on both sides.
In addition, I have tried to adjust the cable via the handbrake lever and lastly, I have tried a technique which involved attaching molegrips on the handbrake cable on the drivers side. That techniques intention was to try and get some cable tension back to the passenger side (e.g. stopping the drivers side cable from moving and pull the handbrake repetitively. to try and get passengers side cable to tense up).
Unfortunately, none of these techniques have worked, do you guys have any ideas on what I can do to get the passengers side drum to function?
