1994 Dodge Caravan Rear Brakes / HOT - new Wheel Cylinders


Brakes problem
1994 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 182000 miles

Blew a rear wheel cylinder, lost pedal / fluid, NO BRAKE LIGHT WARNING

Changed Wheel Cyl's and shoes, bled at all wheels.

Brakes work terrific, but. Rear drums are really HOT (280F at the moment with a 3 mile test drive not using brakes)

Wheels spin free when jacked up on axle.
I released adjusters to point the the E brake is barely working, and still hot, but no dragging. Shoes are correct Dimension (measured with digital calipers)

Is there a way to reset the proportioning valve, maybe it is applying full rear, but stopping hard activates frts too)

any help greatly appreciated.

Do you
have the same problem?
