Brakes

Hi there I've got a 1932 ford with disc brake front and drum rears. The problem is at low speed the rear wheels the rear right more than the left rear lock up and skid. Any ideas thanks.

Are they both adjusted the same?


I've had quite a few leaky axle seals cause that. When the gear lube gets heated up and cooled down from the brakes working normally, it turns into glue and locks up the wheel very easy.

Brake shoes correct short to front of car long facing rear. Another way to check the adjustment, carefully feel the drum. If dragging, one will be hotter that the other, heat gun is another option.

Also you can smell a hot brake ... out or round brake drum hard to visualize. How that would happen beyond a manufacture defect or drums turned so thin it is ridiculous.

Drums are cheap to replace, if they are the ones that came with the car. I'd replace both if in doubt

Other things for the future are, I always replace both wheel cylinders and make sure that neither parking brake cable is frozen or hung up.
