My 14B FF passenger side drum locks up when I go forward but not back. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif I am not on the brakes at all. It just started happening yesterday. I need it to drive to school tomorrow. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

the shoes are probably soaked in brake fluid or gear oil. you can back off the adjuster on that side a little to drive it till you can tear it apart and replace which ever seal is probably leaking. also make sure the e brake cable isnt hanging the shoe up.

I will second that.

If it locks up when you put on the brakes then is gear oil getting to the shoes. If it locks up when you are trying to move forward, then it is something mechanical that needs to be adjusted, which means you ahve to tear it all a part. Have fun. My back still hurts from the last time I did the brakes on my 14FF. That was over a year ago. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

i would pull that drum and look at shoes and see, youll find the cause in there im sure, just like already said, most likely is brake fluid or gear oil leaking into shoes area, such fluids cause shoe lining materials to grab hard


good luck
