try backing the adjuster of a little. also check that the shoes are installed properly.

Angry still draggin

i replaced the shoes, the wheel cylinders, springs and brake fluid everything inside the drums were fried to a crisp. the only thing i didn't replace were the self adjusters. they locked up again while i was pulling a load up a steep hill. i burned up a tire towing it up the hill with the rear brakes locked up. i don't know what to do with it. i've never had a truck that would lock up the brakes by itself.

Does the truck squat on the rear a lot?

sits nice and level although an extra leaf in both springs would't hurt. i pulled the same loads with my 85 6.9 3/4 ton dually for two years with no trouble i'd be using it now but it needs a throw out bearing on the clutch. i just bought the 95 350 7.3 . thats giving me the brake trouble.

maybe the ABS isn't working at all. I'll have to see what I can dig up.
