    My ebrake recently stoped grabing and went out to try and adjust it and could only get one side to lock up with the stupid single adjust screw...is there another way to do this? Oh yeah.. I have a 14bolt w/ discs and cadi calipers. I never had a problem setting the ebrake up when I first did the swap.

    caddy caliper adjustment

    An old trick is to clamp a visegrip onto the ebrake lever then while you actuate the lever back and forth you tap on the caliper housing. 75% of the time you can knock the piston loose and get the brake to adjust up. Once you get the caliper adjusted you should make it a point to use the ebrake at least once a week to keep it adjusted. Good luck.
