As noted elsewhere I've been searching for the cause of a hot right hub assembly (150F vs 90F on the left). Three times I've put it on the hoist hot and the wheel spins as free as a bird with zero drag noted from brake shoes. Driving it yesterday I found panic stops would brake absolutely straight, yet putt'n around the town the right front would grab and pull the wheel. Tore into her again today, with some good suggestions to re-grease all the shoe contact points and @mobileparts
had pointed out yesterday in a picture that I put up that I had the wrong springs across my manual adjuster star wheel. I knew that, as it was what I had in a hardware kit and I didn't want to use my old OE's on assembly at the time. Well it looks like that cockeyed spring may have been tipping the shoe as the wheel cylinder pushed it out, as there is a galling mark in one spot on the inner side of the shoe surface. Why you never throw anything out! Into the box of removed brake shoes and hardware. Cleaned everything up, lubed, reinstalled all the shoe hardware using the correct OE bottom spring, reinstalled the drum (cleaned, as were the shoe surfaces) and retorqued the bearings (all clean and free) to 90in-lb and backed off a notch on the retainer. Test drive tomorrow about 20 miles each way to go fix #3 childs pool.
