I bought a 1951 Ford F600 dumptruck everything checks out but the brakes. I have to pump them at least twice before i get any pedal and then the brakes work great. we have bled the brakes but it didn't help. Can anyone help get me started in the right direction?
You were right, my mechanic tried to adjust the back brakes and we found we need new shoes. this is a 2 ton truck so nobody carries a shoe for a 20 inch wheel that is 60 years old. I'm hoping that i can get them relined. thanks for your help
Making sure that beast will stop before you worry about other things is an excellent plan . You can get your old shoes relined at a brake and clutch rebuilder in your area if you cant find anything off the shelf .
