    Good afternoon, y’all, i recently bought a 1967 Galaxie 500 that had been sitting in North Carolina soil for 5+ years. I got all but the passenger rear drum to move properly, but that last wheel refuses to move. I’ve used the spoon tool to hit the star wheel to the point that the bottom of the...

    New on here and hope someone can help. Recently purchased a 1961 Galaxie coupe. It has power brakes and I removed the vacuum canister which is tied into the brake booster, and found that the canister was about half full of what looks like brake fluid. Would that indicate a bad master cylinder...

    I have a 64 Falcon Futrua 4Dr and the brake lights will not come on. The headlights work just fine but they are about the only electric thing that currently works. I've checked all the bulbs and wires they seem to be in good condition. Not sure what else to check.

    Here is the page I found. I think these with my new K/H calipers and ceramic pads will work very nice. Any input from my fellow Ford lovers? Premium Cross-Drilled & Slotted Rotors

    Rebuilding the rear drum brakes but I hit a snag maybe someone could help me with. I'm trying to connect the brake lever to the shoe. It is held by a horseshoe clip and apparently a spring washer. When I disassembled the brake there was no spring washer but one came with the hardware kit and...

    Out of nowhere my brake went from easy to push and works like a champ to stiff as a board and hard as hell to stop the car at all. i have to press really hard to get any brake response. I was thinking maybe a blockage somehow??? any help is better than no help.

    Got a 67 fairlane 289, manual drum brakes...I inherited it and have just started fixing it up (been sitting for 3+ years undriven). Details on what we've done: cleaned and rebuilt master cylinder, cleaned old gunked up fluid out of lines, cleaned or replaced necessary parts on all four drums...

    Me again. I have no brake pedal travel. There is honestly probably 1/2 of an inch of travel before the brakes throw you toward the windshield. Brakes definately work but the pedal is almost to the floor. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chris

    Hey guys, I'm kind of new to this so any help would be very appreciated. I haven't had any problem with my brakes until earlier tonight, and the guy I bought the car from said he replaced all the brakes on the car before I got it from him. I did run out of gas about an hour beforehand, not sure...
