Front Brakes Stick

Been dealing with this for a while. My front disc brakes stick after you let off the petal. The car moves but you have to put on the gas lightlty to start then can push harder. If push to hard from start, just spin rear wheels. There is no other valves, orther then then distribution block. The brake was a home grown conversion from a 72 cutlas. All else seams to be fine with it. Any ideas? Any chance something like the rotors are to thin after being turned? Thanks in advance.

Re: Front Brakes Stick

Replace your brake hoses if they are not new. Make sure your master cyl piston is returning all the way. You cannot use a drum brake master cyl on a disc system, drum brake master cyls have a residual pressure valve in the master cyl outlet ports.
