Default Re: Low braking phenomena


Not sure if you have located the trouble yet but as hinted above
There are several key things to check out I would look at first.
I’ve done much A brake work and comprehensive restores and have seen a wide variety of issues.
1. Are the engine mounts worn and causing the rear of the transmission to run on the brake cross shaft? If so that could cause pedal issues and is common on worm out cars .

2 if the front backing plates are lose he brake operating pin can bind in the kingpin causing issues . Tighten backing plate bolts very tightly and make sure the pins are not binding by removing them and inspecting.

3 make sure no brake pedal or rod from pedal to respective backing plate is binding or has issue.

Please report back
