    Caliper rubbing rotor

    Hi I'm in the process of tearing down my 69 coronet. I have found that my RHS rotor is rubbing on the caliper. I've pulled it apart, cleaned it up and it still rubs. I'm glad I made the decision to completely re do the car before driving it. Have found a few issues from one of the previous owners.
