Austin-Healey Sprite - Sprite Parking Brake
|Has anyone had a problem adjusting the parking brake cable on a 1960 (Frogeye) Sprite? I assumed after 40 years that the cable had stretched beyond adjustment but a new cable is exactly the same length; the rear brakes are correctly adjusted but the cable will not draw tight.|

|Release the handbrake, then back off the rear brakes at the drum. Then remove the clevis pin near the diff, then re-adjust the brakes.|
As you reconnect the clevis pin you will find it will not reconnect, so adjust the cable to fit into the clevis pin.
Your problem should then be fixed.
