[V8] Give me a brake

I'm basically not using my e-brake. With everything lubed etc, it seems like
the return spring is too weak. Are they known to loose there strength?

Without tapping the cam back in place, the pads bind after application of
the brake.

think you need to adjust this I'd recommend checking everything over first

return springs on the calipers, and second would be binding in the cables
themselves.  I'm afraid that if you adjust the yoke you'd create more
problems than you s
