The old ones are spring loaded as well but there's no provision to pull them up to disengage them.

Thanks for all the great info John. Everything is exactly as you said. The brakes and drums looked fantastic. Looked like maybe the PO had them done. Right about a half inch of pad plus or minus a hair and slight heat fissures in the drums. No grooving. Mine had the old pawls since ...i'm not going to re-do the brakes at this time I'm leaving them in. Unscrewing the pawl tip relieve pressure on the spring mechanism seemed to be all that was necessary. The adjusters turned freely without pulling anything further out of the assembly. To adjust I tightened the adjuster until the drum would not and then backed it off until free drum rotation with slight interference.

Anything I'm missing, especially regarding the old style pawl?

Default Udated pull pawls on slack adjusters

John, a WOG link to the subject, updated "pull pawls". See posts #43 thru #46.

My understanding is that they fit all of the Rockwell/Meritor slack adjusters but you should probably do more research to be sure.

Here's a Meritor slack adjuster manual that mentions them. See page 4 of the manual for a picture of the old style like was on my 91 - the old ones don't have the pull up feature.

Hi Dick,

The link to the Meritor slack adjuster manual in that thread appears to be dead so I'll add the manual to the data base and put a link to it in that thread.
