Well if you watched the first drive video, you know the brakes were dragging. The rears would lock up as soon as I let off the gas. I took this to mean that I messed up the install, but the drum popped right off. A little digging showed that my power booster uses an adjustable threaded rod for the master cylinder. So I adjusted that inward a lot, and voila! No more brake drag! I then went on a real test drive. A couple of miles through the back of the neighborhood to a friend’s house, stopped and showed off the car, then came back. Nice!
