Question about 1993 Land Rover Defender
I have converted my 1935 Austin Seven Ruby to hydraulic brakes and was told at MOT that the rear brakes were binding. How can I correct this?
Do not know MOT, but put the rear axel on support and in neutral with no brakes, turn the wheels to feel the friction... if there, remove the rubber slot cover from the inside of the shoe mounting plate and reduce shoes to minimum adjustment.... if at minimum already, you must remove the shoe and grind out he pivot contact point to allow the shoes to move toward the axel more ie. get away from the drum... if disks, you must find a way to give the disk and pads more clearence. good luck, hny
