Default Need picture of self adjusters installed on drum brakes

Iím getting ready to overhaul the rear drum brakes on my í60. Iím going to retrofit self adjusters and was hoping that someone had a picture of the self adjusters already installed on their squarebird. I have an idea of how everything works and how it goes together, but having a picture is always helpful.

One thing Iím not sure about is if I need to modify the hole on the backing plate for the new star wheel adjuster.

I know you want a real picture, but let's start with the Ford Manuals...
Your parts include:
Star Wheel, ends, and washer - 2041, 2047, 2048, and 372583-S (respectively)
Ratchet Lever - 2A176 (or 2A177)
Cable - 2A178
Cable Guide (I call it a shoe) - 2A179
Rubber Access Hole Plug - 2092

Sometimes real pictures hide features you need to see but a blow-up works to clarify the correct order of assembly. - Dave

Ray, you are awesome! This is exactly what I need! Could you please email me the full size image so I can get a closer look?

I think that was a big a picture of I have. Let me finish processing this new members membership and I will get into my pix for my Tbird and see if I can find a larger picture. If I can, I will email it to you. I will get back with you.

Thanks so much, Ray! I'm going to tackle doing the rear drums this weekend and this picture will take the guess work out of figuring out where the brake adjuster parts go and how they install.

Before Lucille, I've never even done a brake job before, so I'm learning as I go.

I'm a visual learner so this picture along with Dave's illustration is a big help.

Thank you both!

Marcelo, I found the left rear pic also, so now I have left and right. However, they are both the same size as the right side I posted. But what I did was take them into a photo editor and upsized them to 640x480 and 800x600. I will send you both small ones, and then the two larger pictures. Although they are diffused a bit, I think you can still tell exactly how they hook up and are installed. So I will email them to you now.

Hey Ray, just curious, why did you pull your axles? Did you replace your bearings?

If I remember right the star wheel doesn't line up with the adjustment hole on one of the sides. I think it's the driver's side.

I did replace the seals, but I don't remember if we had to replace the bearings. I think they were okay.
