Drum Brake Adjustment Problems?
Here's the deal:
Replacing drum brakes... new shoes, drums, hardware, cylinder... yeah. We just got one side done when it got dark out, but the other side has plenty of pad life left until Thursday when I can get it done.
Anyways, the drum was a little hard to get on, and we can't figure out why. Everything was re-installed EXACTLY the way it came out, it looks exactly like the other side... I'm lost.
The star adjuster is all the way in, I let the emergency brake have some slack, bled the system multiple times, topped off the fluid, but still, I'm getting the soft pedal, the dash light's on, and the braking power isn't what it normally is, even though the shoes are dragging against the drums a little bit. I even tried that retarded "slam the brakes in reverse" method and they made a popping sound when I went forward again.
Did I miss something??????
Just give us some quarters so we can get drunk.
