sticky front brakes


i  took my  Beaumont  on  the  road  a couple of  times  so  far

i  checked  the  brakes before  putting  it  on the road  and  changed  all pads   that  where greasy  ( 4 drums  )  and  replaced  2 cylinders  1   on  pass side in  front   and  1  on  drivers  rear  side  due  to  greasy  cylinders

i  reassembled  every thing   and  losened up  the  ajusters  to  the  min.

springs   looked  ok  and   put  every thing  back  in place  like  it goes  always  checking  the  opposite   side

so  when  i  drive  i  feel  the  brake  stick  very  slightly   but not to bring  much  heat  to  the  rims  but  whwn  the  car  stops  when  i let it  roll   i  feel   a slight  resistence

 

any  ideas  any one  ?

On drum brakes it almost has to be a matter of adjustment for the shoes if it's all clean, new, correct parts installed correctly.

Try backing them off a bit more and drive for a while. Your new shoes may have to seat to your old drums.

i will check but if i remember well i brought the ajuster to the minimum

i heard many years ago you had to back up and brake to self ajust the brakes is this true

I believe that only refers to rear brakes

I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND THAT WHAT EVER YOU DO TO ONE SIDE ON DRUM BRAKES DO THE

SAME ON THE OTHER SIDE.  (CYLINDERS ESPECIALLY ) TO KEEP THEM EVEN !!

so after changing a Wheel cyl ( i had changed this spring ) the front drivers side pads do not come back in to thereplace my ajusters are set to the minimum

i took of the drum and had someone press gently on the pedal and i can see when the pedal is released that the pads do not come in to there closed if i can say position

the pins do not come back completely in the cylinder i have to open the bleeder to push them back in to place

what the f*** is going on ? could it be dirty brake oïl or the check valve Under the master cyl that would not release the pressure like it should

the pass side brake is ok it s only the front drivers side that sticks

any ideas ??

If you crack the bleeder on the wheel cylinder and the shoes don't return on their own, doesn't sound like residual brake/hydraulic pressure. Sounds like weak or hung up return springs. Pop off other side and make sure springs are mounted the same or just buy a new spring kit.

Sounds like the flex line is partially restricted, I've experienced that before.
