V-12 BRAKES

1971 Jaguar E-Type • V12 2WD Automatic • 72,000 miles

1971 V-12 E-type Front brakes seize up after about 10 miles of driving. If I pull over for a few minutes they release. Rebuilt calipers all around.

Try replacing front brake hoses.

I already replaced the hoses in the front. Could it have to do with too much pressure building up in that reservo tank from the air pump?

I'm doing some digging but we know that the calipers are not releasing enough to prevent friction from eventually expanding parts to cause tightness. In other words fluid is not returning to master.
