Hi Doug, all the braking action is from the friction of the disc. I had to replace my friction disc on my 836 when it got down to the rivets. It would not apply enough friction to force the brake shoes to do their job..

Take your car out for a drive and using the hand [parking] brake, see if it stops better than with the foot pedal.. if so, it’s the friction disc. the hand brake operates on all 4 wheels on these models. I had to use the hand brake to augment my foot brakes when the friction disc was worn out.

Make sure your pedal adjustment and friction disc adjustments are allowing the disc to do it’s job.

Hope this helps.
