'29 Ply Brake Peddle Firmness


(To a replay to a prior post)  Their brake peddle went down 1/2 way down before getting firm. Wanted to know if that is normal. For my two cents === After bleeding the whole system. As long as the brakes work with a solid peddle, then release the peddle for about one min. and press peddle down one time again. The peddle should stop at the same position as the first time. The initial adjustment of the brake shoes to the drums will have a lot to do with how far the peddle goes down before getting solid. My rule of thumb for that adjustment, keeping in mind most drums have some ware, adjust shoes as close to drums as possible with out any drag on drum. Happy Motoring  Rich
