Front disc brakes dragging
I have an issue with my '69 Camaro (front disc, rear drum).
I recently replaced the vacuum booster because the old one developed a vacuum leak.
Since then, I have had 3 occasions, where the front brakes - mainly the right front caliper - are dragging.
I'm guessing either a sticky caliper, or more likely, the master cylinder piston is not returning all the way back.
Where should I start? Thanks.
Added: the brake booster pushrod (between the booster and master cylinder) is not adjustable. The instructions mentioned shimming the master cylinder if the rod is too long. Is there a special shim,or should I just use flat washer? That will cause the master cylinder to not sit flush againest the booster, though.
