Give me a brake

The park brake cable on my 94 Chev halfton siezed when my wife put it on. I had to cut it to get it to release. First time used in 10 years. Question this- will the adjusters still work without the cable attached?

Yes, as long as the brakes did release when you cut the cable.

The self-adjusters inside the drum usually use a much smaller (un-related)cable and guide that turn the star-wheel adjusters to take up the slack. Everytime you back up and apply the brakes to stop, the self-adjusters do their thing.

Please get that e-brake fixed, and then use them occasionally so they don't re-sieze.
