Ford/john deere autopark brake chris 7-19-10  
I have read the postings on the p30 chassis. is the ford system the same? when 1987 georgie boy is in park, the light comes on on the dash, but still rolls. when you pull the brake release cable, the light goes out and the tension releases on the cable, but i have not checked the fluids, relays, shoes nor wires. if anyone has a diagram or other info that would be fantastic. thanks for the help, chris.

Your system is similar but not the same as the P30. You have a drum brake arrangement on your driveshaft directly behind the transmission. The drum is attached to the driveshaft and the brake backing plate, etc., are fixed to the vehicle chassis. When you place the transmission in Park an electric motor driven hydraulic pump sends fluid to the pressure cylinder at the brake and the brake shoes press out against the drum locking the driveshaft. As with any drum brake the shoes need to be adjusted to compensate for any wear in the brake shoes and also to minimize travel for application of the shoes.
