Lincoln Versailles rear disc brakes

Can anyone direct me to a knowledgable source on LIncoln Versailles rear brackes? I have Versailles disc brakes on the rear of my 28 ford sedan delivery. I bled them last week and got a good firm pedal but after a few miles the right rear got hot and started smoking... couldnt get the calipers pushed back to be able to drive.
the Ebrake lever wasnt moveable so maybe it wasnt adjusted properly?
Anyone with experience or know of someone that has a good working knowledge of this system?
Thanks

Crack the bleeder on the caliper. If it releases, then you have a bad caliper.

This type caliper has a ratcheting piston instead of the design you are more familiar with. When replacing pads, the piston must be turned and pressed into the caliper housing simultaneously. There is a special tool designed for this.

Also, once pads have been replaced, there is an air gap to set to ensure proper pad clearance to the rotor. If the piston has been forced back with a c-clamp, it has been damaged. Trade it on a rebuild.

Versaille disc brakes

Thanks to all those that made the effort to reply to my brake question.. Locally I found a resource that offered a web site that offers very detailed info on the subject.
A recommended read to those needing basic info on the Lincoln Versailles rear end and disc brakes.
