I have a 1958 Saratoga and I notice on the brake adjustment there are 2 screws to adjust the brake band? Is each screw tighten one band and the other tighten the other band. Or how does it work?? Thanks Jerry

That is the correct info, you should follow the manual for the exact procedure.

Nice car. We need some real, non-glamour, photos.

As for your shifter, I strongly suggest that you go to this website:

http://www.mymopar.com/index.php?pid=109

Find the 1958 Chrysler and Imperial service manual and download and save it (It will go into your Download Directory). When it is finished downloading, open it up and save it in the directory of your choice.

While it is open go to Section XI - transmission (starts at page 262/504) and page down to page 296/504 where there is a specific section on "Servicing the Gearshift Control Unit".

Beware of the need to disconnect the battery before going in there. (Because of the back-up light and starter switches)

Good luck.

:)


So today I am still suggesting that you download the service manual via the link above.

Brakes is Section III

The handbrake is Section III-13 starting on page 64/504.

Follow the suggested procedure.
