Re: C5/C6 drum in hat parking brake issue
Here is the odd thing, when I put the rotor on and push it firmly against the axle flange, I can spin the rotor with no issues. Only once I put the rim on and tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern and in stages, does the drag intensify.
When I go back up to work on her, next weekend, Iíll attempt to cycle the parking brake lever a few times.
This is my first exposure to a Corvette set up. The adjuster spreads to circular brake shoe platform while two guides hold the device in close proximity to the backing plate. The passenger side has no where near the resistance when placed on the driver side. Thatís why I suspect the warp, out of round, condition. If both locked up, Iíd suspect an axle or flange issue.
