The right front brake drags om my 84 Interstate. I rebuilt the caliper but same problem exists.Bleeding off the caliper releases the pressure and all ok again. Just wondering if anyone has had this situation?Someone suggested that it could it be the flex line or in the master cylinder. Rear brake is fine. Any thoughts?



Thanks

Dennis

The right front brake caliper is connected to the rear master cylinder. If the rear caliper is OK, then I'd suspect a problem in the line. Could be rubber on the inside coming loose and creating a kind of one-way valve inside the line.

Welcome to the forum, Dennis.

How much is it rubbing?

The pins that the caliper slides on need to be cleaned and lubed periodically. On my LF, the main pin got so corroded it needed replacing.

yes could be both, but most likely it is the pin that allows the brake cylinder to float in the caliper bracket...

If cracking the bleeder screw releases the pressure and allows the caliper to release, it isn't likely the pins. Something is holding the hydraulic pressure in the caliper.
