    Hi everyone. The brakes on my 65 Montclair are super sensitive. It feels like they are sticking or locking somewhat. Does anyone know what would cause that?

    Assuming these are drum brakes, any kind of grease, oil, or brake fluid on the drums or brake shoes will cause the brakes to lock up.  Assume you have checked for that first.  Is it one wheel doing this or all four?  The other simple option might be that the brakes are adjusted too tightly.  Surely whoever adjusted the brakes followed the steps in the shop manual. 



    Yes, drum brakes. I have not checked the wheels yet, but I will. It seems to pull to the right when stopping, so I will check that side first. Thanks!
