Parking brake: 87 Winnebago
Greetings all, I am currently restoring my 1987 31' Wnnebago Cheiftain and I have some questions about the parking brake.
First up, there isnt one, meaning there is no pedal to push down, lever to pull. Nothing. I do however have a "Park Release" handle on the dash. When I start the unit the Park light is on, on the dash and remains on until I put the unit in gear and pull the Park Release. Then the light goes out and it makes some kind of whirring noise. I can then put the unit back into park, the Park light comes back on yet the unit will continue to roll.
I was told it was automatically engaged when you put the unit in Park. Well obviously if thats so, its either broken or needs adjustment.
So I was wondering, can anyone tell me exactly what kind of brake/park system I have and what I should be looking for? I dont even know what to tell people when I ask them about it.
Its a Ford 460 drivetrain, John Deere chassis. 1987
I did see some kind of huge bell or drum right behind the tranny that someone told me had something to do with it but they werent sure how.
Please help if you can, this is really frustrating!!
