It's all in the FAQ/Guides, I think.

Re: Hand brake

Ramps, or pair of axle stands and jack or high kerb, you need to get right under to adjust for cable length.

The drums are high maintenance systems, it may need more than cable length.

Re: Hand brake

As suggested, prepare to overhaul the complete handbrake system.

Cheers
