1941 Ford pickup brakes
I took off the stock front drums and shoes, cleaned everything and put them back together, but now the brakes lock up. Never had his happen before. I can back the truck without a problem, but they lockup going forward. Is it possible the lower eccentric washer is not seated on a front drum or maybe the eccentric is worn? Other thoughts are appreciated before I take things apart again.
