Replaced parking brake equalizer bracket; properly adjusted both the rear brakes (with the star wheels) and the parking brake. According to what I've found, some dragging with drum brakes is normal -- and if I adjust things so that there is no dragging when the parking brake is off, the parking brake will not hold the truck on an incline. But, properly adjusted (and with some dragging even with the parking brake off), I've got the parking brake to where it will hold the truck even on a significant incline. I verified with a 55-mph drive to the post office and back that despite the dragging, things are not getting even slightly warm -- so it's probably nothing worth worrying about. It's great to finally have a working parking brake!
