Yes, there are two of these threads, and I posted in the wrong one. I'll do a post in the one you started now, since that's where I posted before. Vroom Vroom...

I think I have it fixed. The brakes were locking up when I came to a stop. But Tractormanbill suggested I check for play in the M/C push rod to be sure it was fully releasing the piston. I had not moved the adjustment from where it was when I got the truck. I had to move it about 1/4" to allow some play, and that appears to have fixed the locked brakes.

I took it out for another spin around the block, and the brakes are not locking up now, so I think that was it.

Joe,
I had the same problem when I set up my brakes. Its hard to measure for a brake pushrod.
