Drum Brakes, no pedal.

This one is for the 55 Nomad. Drum brakes all the way around. Brakes have been bled and fluid in all locations. Pads are new. What are we missing? I thought some of you gurus might be able to provide some insight.

Re: Drum Brakes, no pedal.

2 things to check. Did you adjust the shoes before putting the drums on? 2nd, is the master new or power? There have been issues with the wrong length pushrod. if the master is old, possible the master is leaking internally.

Re: Drum Brakes, no pedal.

To answer the first question, I don't think so. Hubby was thinking that as well. As to the second, The master cylinder is 2 yrs old, as is the booster...will check the shoes first. Thanks.

all got to be adjusted right before bleeding. that way need pressure on brakes to push air out.
