Handbrake

Evening all - Brakes were pulling after replacing one front wheel cylinder, rebuilding the other side with new seals, a drum skim, flexi pipes and new pads last year so decided to fit a new cylinder on the other side (why didn’t I just do that before!!!) now works lovely and sharp.
Anyway I also sorted the high handbrake by adjusting it up and holds a treat, however I tried it today at 30 mph as a test for emergencies and pulled heavily to the right so only grabbing hard one side. It there a way of adjusting a single side on the front handbrakes? I can only see the rear adjustment which changes both sides at the same time.

thanks

Haha that’s an option but really want it as a back up to the brakes. See that as the main advantage on the front wheels if theres a failure - don’t think mine’s a dual circuit system. It should stop Really well if I can get them both working fully, also managed to get the lever only about 3 clicks and on so doesn’t stick up my arse anymore :)
