Its a never ending battle with this car. Let me start with what I did to get the brakes working. I started with a 4wheel drum no power brake car. Added the XV motor sports k-member and the all the Corvette susp and front brakes. Then after trying a adj purporting valve and then removing it as I couldn't see any adjustment changing the rate at which the rear brakes engaged but throughout all this I had a real hard pedal. After trying a large and small bore master, the larger one seemed to work the best and all was good but the car had overheating problems so seat time was limited. fast forward a year a new engine and a set of willwoods on the rear. Brakes are good when I roll out of the driveway but as I drive the rear brakes seem to be engaged to the point something is going to give. If it has a disc drum master is there something in them that keeps some kind of pressure on the rear? what else can it be. does any one of you Mopar guru's know of a late model 4wheel disc master cyl that can be bought from a local parts store that will bolt right up with little or no fab work? I ramble but its a 4 wheel disc that rear brakes are dragging. I have a spring on the pedal so the weight of it doesn't engage them. Its really frustrating to wrench on this thing and get little seat time. Its basically a new car. I'm sure once I get this fixed I can get some miles on it and get it ready for the fall fling here in a few weeks...
