Default BAY WINDOW REAR BRAKES

Evening folks

I've put all new components on my 72 crossover bay rear brakes. Because I swapped out everything including backing plates, I thought I would just buy all 73-on stuff and keep it simple.

Putting it all together, when I refit the hub and tighten it up the brakes bind.

My question is, do you think I have a bearing issue or is it to do with the new brakes?

Thanks!
Gordie

Could be that you need th shamfer(sp) the outer (nearest you) edge of the brake shoes with a file.

Edit to add.
Side edge of the shoe fouling inside the drum.

Good shout man, thanks for the reply.

I took a bit off the edge and nothing really changed, but it made me look further.

I noticed some scoring on the fresh backing plate. Led me to find the housing for the star adjusters wasn't seated flush by about 2mm.

These things a fine tuned man!! Haha. Encouraged it over the locating pin and BOOM, we're back in business.

Thought I'd leave the reply incase anyone comes across this on a search.
