Default 66 1100a 4x4 Travelall - All Drum - Pulls to The Right

Given the nightmare with the #madeinchina master cylinder and the replacement purchased from IHPartsAmerica I am in nirvana.

However, always in search of making things a little better.

When applying firm brake pressure the car has a tendency to pull to the right.

Applying additional pressure, the rear wheels start to skid a little bit. (way better than with the #madeinchina master cylinder)

Thoughts on adjustment?
Thanks!

How's the condition of your drums, shoes, and wheel cylinders all around?

Drums turned in the back, new in the front. Shoes new, all the way around. Wheel Cylinders new all the way around. New handy dandy master cylinder from ippartsamerica (which made everything much better).

The driver's side rubber line to the wheel cylinder replaced. The passenger side has not been replaced. (I have it.) Might the pressure on the passenger side (right to where it pulls) be greater than the left?

Then there are the rear brakes almost locking way before the front wheels even come close. No clue here.

Did you use a drum caliper to measure each drum diameter and then adjust the shoes to match? It could be that you got the adjustment a little off on one or more sets. I'm not a brake expert. Just trying to rule out simple possibilities for you first. You might have to take it in to a brake shop.

I might end up taking it to a brake shop. I wonder if people even work on drum brakes anymore.. LOL

Before I do this, I might try loosening up the rears a click or two.
Tighten up the driver's side one click. Test and see if it is any better.

Lots of new cars still roll off the assembly line with drums every day.

Are your spring to axle U-bolts all tight?
