    brakes sticking

    Arrgggg. Brakes felt a bit less firm, more normal to me. Still binds after stopping. L rear locks on hard braking, normal for pickup? I guess it's time for a brake job, yuck. I'll inspect each brake before I replace pads. Maybe I've got a loose spring? Any tips would be appreciated Thanks Uncle Laulau

Now Im gonna drive around a bit, brakes don't fail me now! oh i topped off brake fluid

    brakes sticking

    I've got sticking brakes in my 72 pu. Started off noticing r front locking up the first time I applied the brakes. That went away and now I'm noticing sticking at stops. Im going to inspect the pedal, master cylinder, and brakes in that order. Thanks for the informative posts, and I'll let everyone know how it goes. Ive got my money on the r front being broken. I remember hearing a clunk when I broke way back. The clunk is gone and now the sticking.

    Thanks Banzai, I'll check the filler hose. I have the matchbox in the garage, I'll try and put it back in.

    Drove it over the bridge into work this morning...running even better than yesterday! I can't say thanks enough Wayno, you rock man.

    Oh my word, thanks and more thanks goes out to Wayno! Wayno came over after a perfect game of golf and started my truck right up. First he drained my gas tank, found water in it! Then got my wiring mess taken care of and put back in the points distributor and got it running! Wayno you rock!

    That wagon is over at Clark right. I park my 521 over there all the time, for class. Small world.

    Snow fun

    1/17/12 a day that will live in my mind as the best snow night I have eva had in da Couve! Looked outside later in the evening, wife was snoozing and I was checking out the idiot box. Snow snow snow was coming down. Being a So Cal native I thought it was a blizzard! I woke my wife up to look out the window and she smiled, knowing she would have the day off...teacher. Snow takes on such a different meaning in the PNW. I've lived on the East Coast, and snow just aint that big of a deal for the locals, so I didn't make it one, so I would kinda fit in. Now snow iiiisssssssss a huge deal and I get to have fun and drive a forty year old truck around Vantucky in the middle of the night. Got stuck on a hill with other folks. Got unstuck and turned some heads. People didn't know what to think of the little truck. The driver was a dork for sure! Ah when will it snow again...
