Well I am sure it is not pads, shoes or wheel cylinders. What got me on to this whole thing was the fact that I had to take all of the wheels off and take them to my buddy at the tire shop. As most of you may know....the damn corrosion that takes place between the steel wheels, and chrome causes tire leakage, so I took the wheels in for a good D-and-C and reseal the beads.

While they were doing that I was having the parts shop turning my drums, and while they were doing that I was taking care of my brakes, thinking that was at least PART of the problem. Once I got everything all put back together and out for a test drive the problem was still persisting.

Hopefully the M/C replacement will cure what ails. I bench bled the M/C and installed it this evening, and dad'* foot will be here in the morning for the line bleed. I will inform you all of the results after the test drive.....if I can STOP when I get back.

That was it. I wasn't too impressed at first but once I wore all of the brake fluid off of stuff the stopping power was back to normal.

After all of the stuff I have done to it, it feels like I just bought a new car. All I need now is a good waxing...anyone interested?

Thanks for the input from everyone.
