Brakes problem
1989 Nissan 240SX 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

i lost brakes, replaced master cylinder, now my rear brakes are semi locked-up. It's all around discs, non-abs, I bled them and for a few miles they were ok, then I felt them slowing me down and when I stopped and checked, smelled them burning. I don't know what it is.
Do you

DRAGGING BRAKES

May create a steering pull and/or increased fuel consumption. Caused by weak or broken retracting springs on drum brakes, a jammed or corroded caliper piston, a floating caliper with badly corroded mounting pins or bushings (uneven pad wear between the inner and outer pads is a clue here), overextended drum brake self-adjusters or a sticky or frozen emergency brake cable.
