Red face Front Disc Brakes 35 Ford

The disc brakes on the front of my 35 Ford appear to be too tight against the rotor when pressure is released. Rotor can be turned with a small amount of force, however will not spin freely.

All thoughts regarding my problem will be appreciated.

sounds like you have a residual pressure valve in your m.c., open the bleeder valves on front calipers, if it sprays out you'll know, plus that will let the pads release.

i agree with joegaddy, also, if the car sat for 2-3 months or longer,the caliper pistons may be sticking.
you need to bleed system and try again. if that doesnt do it, must rebuild or replace them. i hope this helps,good luck & update us on what fixed it.
