Rear Brakes grabbing after service
Need some guidance here....
Recently, I had installed on 72 RR SS LWB a new rear accumulator and a rear accumulator valve. A few months prior, I replaced the front accumulator valve.
After the install and the subsequent bleeding of the rear brakes, the bled the front, I took it for a drive and the pedal seemed to get harder and less play. Then the car/engine was struggling to keep speed up because the rear brakes were grabbing. Pulled over and noticed smoking from the rear brakes. I turned off the engine and just turned the key on and did the brake test multiple pumps 30-50 times to illuminate both brake lights, they both came on and relieved the brake pressure, heard a small thump and was able to drive a short distance and it happened again.
Any ideas why this would happen? Any suggestions?
