Puch Brake Adjustment???

Michael Nesson /

I need to adjust the tension on my Puch Maxi and was wondering how to take up the free play? Is it hard....anyone with ideas, please let me know! Thanks

Each end of the cable has adjusters that take up slack.

Which end do I start with? It seem the slack is in the hand levers? Do I loosen the coupling and adjust from there? I'm new at working on peds!

I'd let all the slack out, then shorten the brake cable a bit at its attachment at the wheel.

That should allow you to make future adjustments with the cable adjusters.

Yes, if the cable is stretched beyond adjust limits you'll end up doing a slight modification on the wheel end of the cable.

Namely the lug will be useless and you need to make a new end stop with clamp. I gave this tip to a friend it worked for him.
