are the rear drum brakes supposed to drag slightly?
I took the drums off to check the wear on the shoes. I put them back on and noticed they are dragging a bit. I went to adjust the parking brake and even when the bolt is all the way loose, the brakes still drag. Actually the parking brake was a little loose before. The service manual says the parking brake should be adjusted so there is no drag.
so is some drag normal? do I need to adjust something in the drum assembly to stop them from dragging?
Re: are the rear drum brakes supposed to drag slightly?
i think i figured it out - i pushed the brake pedal while the drums were off and the thing self adjusted out. I found the adjuster bolt gear, turned it a few times, put the drum back on, and pumped the brake pedal to re self adjust. now it seems good.
