if mine does not engauge within 1/2 of the total distance on the handle/ pedal, I adjust it so it does...

and not every system is designed to work in reverse.. most do, but the particular system that Ford used on the Mustang/ falcon, at least the 6cyl 7/1/4 rears, is not designed to work in reverse.. it actully does not apply preassure in that motion. the brakes would have to be tight to begin with, for it to apply in reverse... remember Ford did have a problem with rollaway vehicles in this time period. and part of it was insufficent parking brakes.. the other part was popping out of park.
