Capn, I think the spring that you talk about is missing from my set up so as Gazjen suspected a missing part could be the problem. On page 3, figure 10, item 2 (spring cylinder) I have no spring inside. From memory it basically has the bolt from the end of the brake cable at one end and the bolt attaching it to the ram at the other end. I'll check this evening.
I put blocks behind it yesterday and reversed back until the ram was right in. The brake cable was not tight, but then I realised that whatever happens when you reverse at the drum would have kicked in so my test was pointless! Like you say I'd need someone else to reverse it to see what was happening.
Thanks for the info guys, I think first off I will have to source a new spring cylinder.
Well mine was nothing like that
The handbrake just pulls straight on to the cable, no spring can be heard, so I think you're right about it being stuck.
