Loosen the locknut at the front brake lever, screw the adjuster fully
in, and tighten the locknut.
Loose the nuts [A] at the lower end of the brake cable.
Turn the nuts at the lower end of the front brake cable so that the
brake lever has the correct amount of play, and tighten the nuts.

complate the adjustment with the adjuster at the brake lever, and
then tighten the locknut.
Check for brake drag.
Check braking effectiveness.
Slide the dust cover back into place.
For minor corrections, use the adjuster at the front brake lever.
