Default Rear Brake Drag

Appears as I have a major problem with rear brake drag. New wheel cylinders, spring kit, park brake cable, drums and shoes. Brakes just will not release. Bled system no air in the system. Any help really don't want to change master cylinder but I just don't know where else to look.

check the star adjusters, and see if they are simply adjusted too tight, if you put new brakes in without loosening them up id bet they are your problem

you should be able to loosen them up through the adjustment port in the back with a couple of screwdrivers

They were backed off prior to putting the drums back on and if you open the bleeders they retract. Thinking maybe a stuck check valve or master cylnder maybe.

Well we know if the self adjusters were too tight you would have never got the drums on.

Once you get the brakes back together, get the wheel on, spin it, apply the brakes and try to spin the tire again it's locked up?

Sounds like a classic bad rubber brake line located next to the wheel cylinder.

yup i agree with hydra as long as you correctly adjust the brakes look at the line (yes fox incorrectly adjusted auto adjusters can cause the wheels to lock up)

Thanks for the reply .
Wheels turn easily until brakes are applied then the won't release unless it sets for half an hour or you open the bleeder screws. Will replace the rubber line and the proportion valve next and pull the fuse on the ABS

But not lock up and stay locked up.

Where did I say impossible? I'm not trying to insult your intelligence. What gives here?
