Front Brake Locking when Hot. All New Parts.
99.5 F250 4x4 248,500
New brake hose
New Calipers (Pins are well greased and move freely)
Flushed the lines twice
Everything is torqued to spec
I didn't have any problems before I did all this.
Now, after driving about 2 or 3 miles above 30 mph, the front driver's side brake locks up and will smoke if I don't stop. If I pull over and wait 10 mins it will be fine for another 1 mile or so then drag and lock up.
I loosened up the bolts that connect MC to the Hydro and it doesn't help.
If I pump the brakes when cold, it doesn't lock up and moves freely.
The fluid flows normally and doesn't squirt when opening the bleeder when cold. I'd rather not open the bleeder when hot and get hot brake fluid burns, I haven't tested it when hot.
I have searched online for hours and am now at a loss. Anyone else experienced this?
