It will need 1" spacers and probably shorter tires to make them work. I was discouraged to find the drums extremely rusty and had two wheel studs break off removing that one wheel. Since I'm going to install a new posi unit, I'm just going to buy new axles and wheel studs too. That why I'll some decent piece of mind in it and don't have to mess with trying to get these drums off when installing the new disc brakes.

Cool! Shorter tires will make it look pretty sweet. I like the new chevy wheels.

Replaced the rear axle bearings and seals and pressed the new studs onto the Yukon axles, ready for the posi install and it can all go back together. Crossing my fingers that new cover I bought clears the panhard bar. If I get time tonight I'll probably clean up the housing and mount the rear caliper brackets. Front control arms are scheduled for delivery tomorrow so I'm hoping to have time to get all the brake and suspension parts on it by this sunday.

Got the new master cylinder and power booster painted and installed over the weekend. Need to pick up a couple of adapters to finish running the lines at the prop valve. Took the entire front suspension off and cleaned 46 years of grease and dirt from where I could. Only found one ball joint castle nut about to fall off, not bad when none had cotter pins in them. Need to order new tie rod ends and adjuster links and I'm taking my new control arms to Kistsap Powder Coaters to get a quote this afternoon. I'm hoping to be pulling my car with this by the July Bremerton race.

Today I mounted the rare sport door mirrors I was lucky to find, an old school plaid seat cover, new door panels and handles, and manual choke cable. I still can't get the front brakes to release right away, they hang for about 3-5 seconds every time I use them and the pedal won't return the last 1/4". Also chasing a vacuum leak I think, can't seem to tune out an idle surge, but the carb is an ancient 650 Carter. The line lock works well and it leaves great 11's!
Need to install the rear helper lift bags and trailer brake controller. It needs some major help in the power dept too!

The brakes on my old truck would stick also. Turns out the pedal pivot needed lube and I loosened nut a tiny bit.

CPP had me lube the pedal rod at the back of the booster but that didn't really help. I spaced the master from the booster 1/8", but that didn't help either. CPP had a bad run of prop valves a while back I guess and it might be the piston inside it that's hanging. I'll call them again tomorrow.

 I think you are on to something Craig. My Chevelle brake pedal did that after sitting for 6 years. Turns out the cross shaft the pedal pivots on was all rusty. Needed to remove the pivot shaft, sand it, replace the plastic bushings and lube the whole shaft and bushings (mine is a 4 spd car so I still have 3 pedals even though it now has an TH350 but autos have the same style pivot shaft).

Check this out Mike.
