I am overhauling the complete brake system, front and back, cleaning, painting, new liners, etc. for my 1931 Coupe. Is there a written procedure(for dummies)on how to adjust and centralize the brakes after all 4 corners have been installed. I can only find bits and pieces on how to do this. I am unsure how to adjust or set the Service Brake Camshaft Operating Levers. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have a service manual, it should be in there.

yes there is a pretty clear procedure that was in the the Service News as well as the owners/repair manual. not sure if the 31 requires the special brake tool like the 29 & 30 do to hold the crossshaft(s) on place
