He brought the car over and the brake pedal was all the way up and hard he says its happened before and he had to bleed some fluid off at the master cyl to get rolling again at first I thought it might be boiling the brake fluid but it is only doing it on the fronts it has a single res. Master cyl. This car has been a ten year resto with numerous people working on it and has just recently got it on the road

Do you
have the same problem?

BOTH OF MY JEEPS ARE DRUM ALL DA WAY

PRIMARY SHOE ALWAYS GOES TO THE FRONT--NO MATTER WHAT OR WHICH WHEEL....DO YOU UNDERSTAND THIS? I CAN EXPLAIN MORE

WHEEL CYLINDERS MOVE FREELY WHEN PUSHED BACK AND FOURTH W/ OUT SHOES AGAINST THEM?

IS IT POSSIBLE THE LEFT SELF ADJUSTER IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE? AND VICA VERSA?

OLD RUBBER BRAKE HOSES WILL SOMETIMES ACT LIKE A CHECK VALVE---ALLOW FLUID INTO TO THE WHEEL CYLINDER BUT NOT BACK OUT (SAME W/ CALIPER BRAKES)

YOUR TURN
