Re: Brakes issue

This happens when you leave your hand brake on ,then you release it in the morning the brake shoes are sticking to the drum,then they release when you either go forward or reverse,was a known fault from years ago ,,brake shoes have been over adjusted the drums then get hot ,cools down which causes a film of rust which in turn makes the brake shoes stick to the drum,,,shoes just need slacking off from the adjusters,hence less friction ,less heat, simples
