HELP! Did Durms today, now a question....
I did my drums today (everything in there, including the cylinders), all went well except I had to replace my drivers side brake line cause the bolt got rounded out. Once finished I was told to reverse and stop several times to adjust the brakes, which I did 8 times.
Two things: all works fine and feels fine while driving, but after a short drive (about 20 km's back to my home) my passenger drum is too hot to hold my finger on for more than a few seconds (but not hot enough to sizzle water), while the drivers side is warm/hot, but I can easily keep my fingers on it for any length of time. OK, which one is not good? I assume I incorrectly adjusted the little adjusted thing on one of them, but which one? Should they get that hot? How do I correctly adjust that adjuster (I lubed and cleaned it by the way).
Second, it was 7pm when I went to get a new brake line, and the only place had one that was 50" long, just over a foot longer than I needed after bending. Is it fine that I did some artisitic bending to it to get it shorter in order for it to fit right?
I am done for the night. But I will re-inspect tomorrow I if anybody would be so kind to lend some thoughts, much appreciations would occur.
