Re: Brake Shoe Smell
Got home from a show Saturday and noticed I smelled brake shoe odor when I pulled in garage. Got out and felt all 4 wheels and it's definitely the drivers rear drum brake. Wasn't smoking, but Rally wheel was very warm to the touch compared to the other 3. What would you guys look for first with this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Some other info that may help. I restored this car 19 years ago and replaced every single component of the entire brake system. The car has about 7500 miles on the restoration. Not one bit of brake problems till this past Saturday.
Brake shoe is dragging and you need to back off the star wheel adjuster.
But it's been so long I need Everett or someone without alzheimer's to tell you how.
