My mechanical skills don't allow me to comment on the technical feasibility of what you're proposing!

But, having had the Lockheed drum brakes on my GT apart in recent weeks, I think it would be worth you checking that the self-adjusters on both sides are a) working properly and b) are equally adjusted. Before you start cutting clevis pins.

I think it would also be worth you asking someone to measure how much each handbrake lever at the drum backing plate moves when you pull up the handbrake lever at the centre console - if the movement is the same both left and right, then it sounds to me like you may have an issue with your self-adjusters.

Please feel free to ignore all this if you've got Girling brakes!
