| : suggestions, please... recently replaced all brake linings (and all other wear items) on my 29 tudor.I used the woven linings with impregnated brass, as I have done in the past.At the recommendation of my brake shop, I didn't have the original drums turned.The car is relatively low mileage and they looked great.|
: With maybe 150 miles now on the new brakes they're squealing like crazy, especially on the first stop after sitting for a few days.I didn't have this problem with the brake job on my last car, although I did have those drums turned.Any thoughts?Will this "get better"?
A possible cause for your problem may be in that the new lining may not be contacting the drum totally. If one end of the shoe is making contact and the other is not the vibration the previous respondent described will be present in spades. Our brakes behave much differently than modern hydraulic brakes.
We're havin' fun now!!!!!!!
