67 Parisienne front drums


Car was braking fine and just recently started pulling left again the other day. All new parts up front Drums ,shoes ,wheel cylinders ,hoses ect ,ect All new bushings in suspension and a PROPER alignment done in Clinton by the good man Carl recommended. Car was perfect all summer! So now this problem again . Does anyone have experience with this type of problem? I have heard that the return port in the master cylinder can be plugged ?? Anyone ever run across this? If so were you able to clean it with a pipe cleaner or wire? When bleeding lines plenty of fluid came out.So I don't think that the lines have crap in them. Thanks for any help Greg

Try readjusting your brakes first now that the shoes have seated in. They don't always self adjust evenly.

Ok when I get home tonight I will check the adjustment So for now let's assume it's bang on And the pull still persists Has anyone ever had to unplug the holes in the master?

Well I adjusted the the brakes they were almost perfect now they are adjusted perfect. Both the right and left. Test drive ... Only the drivers side works. Anyone able to explain why the master might be the problem? I suspect that's were the problem is Thanks

I want to make sure I have this right. You had a pull to the left, now with adjusted brakes you have a pull to the right. Is that correct?

No the car still pulls to the yellow line on the highway. Even if I set the passenger front tire up too tight ( so it drags and heats up) I can only get three skid marks in gravel. Both rears leave a skid , and the front drivers side leaves a skid.

Ok, gotcha.

Have you tried bleeding the passenger side wheel cylinder? Some kind of blockage maybe? Bad brake hose on that side?
