Are you 100% you got all the air out ? And you are dealing with drum to drum brakes right so did you adjust them all the way around with the proper drag on them ? Sounds to me like you simply have some air left to get out and need to re-adjust them. JMO

when you spin the wheel with the brakes released, the shoes should just barely drag on the drums

X2 you will feel and should even hear it starting to drag when adjusting and spinning the wheel but feeling is the best way

Cole and Matt sound like they still have their thinking caps on, must have not partied too hard last night. I used too set them so I could get one rev out of then when spun by hand.

Happy new year Cole, Matt, and 71 Nova.

double check the shoe adj on all 4 corners
and just a note, when bleeding you should start at the break that is farthest away
but you may have already known that

also, make shure there are no leaks on all that new stuff

Proper adjustment is to tighten until they are locked and then back of 7 clicks. This assures the shoes seat properly.
I would be willing to be you still have air in the lines.
Can you explain your bleeding procedure.
