Re: [Chrysler300] 300C Brakes





Check the MC input rod from the peddle, it needs to release the master completely plus about a 1/16 of inch. If the rod doesn't release completely, the pressure will remain at the cylinders and cause the brakes to drag. I my case it was cumulative, several applications of the brakes caused more pressure to them eventually locking them up. Just a suggestion.

You might also check the short hose from the master cylinder also.  I had one of those collapse internally on my 57 Desoto and caused the same symptoms.

Which brakes are dragging?
You might want to replace the rubber hoses from the front brakes to the frame.
They can deteriorate inside and end up with a flap of rubber hanging down inside the hose and acting like a valve.
Pressure to the brake pushes it out of the way and with no pressure, the flap falls down into the hose and prevents the fluid from returning to the MC.

Hello.
I have replaced the mastercylinder, and serviced the wheelcylinders on my 300C. And I have adjusted the brakes according to the sevice manual.
It seems like there are still pressure present in the system after the brakes are released. The brakes are dragging.
I forgot to check the free play between the push rod, and mastercylinder. I hope the pedal free play adjustment will do the trick. Otherwise I’m out of good ideas.
I will try this on friday night, and I’m hoping to use the car on saturday at the end of season cruisin’.
Any ideas?
