O.K first I pushed fresh JT-6 through all 6 bearing sets until I got new grease out. Got loose/runny grease with good color out of 4, all three on one side, and just the front on the other. No sign of any metal in the runny chit. The other 2 hubs, the grease was not broke down at all.
Broke open the line behind the master cyl...and nothing...no pressure in the line...in fact no fliud came out at all.
Jacked up each side of the front axle...no brake drag at all, in fact not even a scraping (they need to be adjusted, unless they were hung up long enough to thin the shoes some).
WTF is going on???
Troutly, when you had these issues, did it resolve itself and leave you scratching your head...or did you do something to resolve it?
