It's always great to hear the solution. Glad you got it sorted out.

|Retro 32||All ficed drums where so badly out of round they couldn't even be skimmed. New drums problem solved.|

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

|Retro 32||I have a proportioning valve on the rears. I've sent my drums in to get skimmed cause I think they might be out of round. out|

proportioning valve ???
u may need one or if u have one it needs adjusting.
|05-22-2019 06:24 AM|
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.

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.
