    620 brake issue

    here's my setup if anyone is interested. I ran all new bushings everywhere, decided I wanted to cap off the bumpstops with some dimple died plate. Picture of the pass side brake and control arms Mike made me. I had to get the hub turned down to clear my wheels. I haven't painted anything yet, don't really plan on it. I barely drive it. Here's the 620. 21,000 original miles, very little rust. Second owner, bought locally. I have all the dealer paperwork and all.

    620 brake issue

    I fixed it. I took off the calipers to inspect the sliders, etc.. then c clamped the two pistons in, power bled the caliper.. Did both sides, then did the master again. It's fine now, still a bit of resistance, I think the pads might be a bit on the large side, but it coasts now!

    xD, I've never had this issue on Rockauto. Usually everything I get is awesome, but I'll try that.

    Here's what I have. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=311498&cc=1212141&jsn=421 I can definitely measure it all, and take pictures tomorrow. It shows the pads for 4x4 and 2wd being the same for the v6.

    Raybestos, it's sticking on both drivers/pass. The sound seems to be coming from pass side though.

    620 brake issue

    It'll move, but when I'm rolling into a stop sign 1 or 2 km/h, it'll stop on it's own. They're too hot to touch, and when I take off from the light, there is a bit of a harsh sound, I'm not sure if it's from the dragging pass side brake or not, but it wasn't there with the drum brakes. I had a feeling it was from the new wheel bearings being too tight, but I took off the caliper all together, and the hub spins great.

    620 brake issue

    So, I pulled the master cyl out of the brake booster.. brakes still held, opened bleed screw on front channel, brakes still held. Opened the bleed screw on the caliper, still held... These are "new" remanufactured Raybestos calipers from RockAuto.. Could they really be faulty?

    Yes, the rotors are super hot, they're definitely dragging. I'll play around with it some more, see where it gets me. Thanks Mike,

    I did adjust it, a few times now, but I did not see a difference in pressure. Would I have to bleed the brakes again after adjusting it? Or drive it around after?

    620 brake issue

    I've recently installed the Mike Klotz hardbody conversion to my 76 620. Here's my setup: v6 Hardbody callipers, rotors, pads, lines etc. 15/16" master cylinder Oem booster rear Oem drums, no proportioning valve or residual valve. The issue I'm having, is the front brakes always have a bit of pressure, rears have none like normal. The brakes work fine when I want to use them, but when I'm off the brakes, the fronts are always a bit on. I have tried adjusting the brake pedal bolt in and out, made no difference. Brakes still drag... Does anyone have experience with this problem who can maybe point me in the right direction?

    620 flasher issue.

    1976 620 L20B - Issue: Right rear flasher doesn't flash, either bulb. Front works, left side works, all 4 hazards work. Brake lights work, but if right side flasher is on, it kills that brake light. I've metered out the bulb sockets in the rear, and it has relayed power, same as all the other sockets. Does anyone have a similar situation, or a solution?
