You can only adjust the system at the rear wheels (which effectively adjusts the clearance of the P/B shoes inside the rotors which in turn reduces the play at the handle. If the clearance is correct and they are not too tight and "dragging" (there should be NO contact when the system is not engaged) then the cable has stretched or some other component has malfunctioned and you would need to have it looked at....

Chuck,
Thanks and we will figure out another way to get around only about an inch of cable showing. Putting the assembly into a Chevelle .
As an UPDATE-- Successfully installed the parking brake mechanism and 2012 Camaro shifter in the 69 Chevelle. Should work great with the 2012 Camaro center console, a 6.2l engine and 6l80 transmission..
Thx for the help Chuck.

PS: Still need to know which leads at the shifter operate the neutral safety switch solonoid and at what voltage ?
Tom
