Default G19E brake sensitivity

Hi,

The brakes on my 2000 G19E are really sensitive. The pedal moved almost to the floor when I bought the cart so I have adjusted the brakes a little but when you step on the brakes, it's really hard to make a smooth stop. The brakes seem to grab and want to lock up.

Is there any kind of adjustment at the rear end or are there other adjustment steps that I need to go through? Do I need to replace the brake shoes?

Thanks
CSR

If you tightened up the brakes at the cable, then you need to go back and adjust the brakes correctly. Check through these pages for proper adjustment

The way I was taught by Don Plowman was to take all the adjustment out of the cable, then do all of your adjustment on the drum brake itself. Then take the slack out of the cable and you should be good to go!

I'll take a look at the drums when I get it out of the trailer next. Thanks for the input.
