Re: [Chrysler300] 300-F brake problems - follow-up

Car collection is a generational thing. When we were young (remember that?), what we saw collected were Model A's and 30's cars. Then they faded out as the owners were afraid to drive them in modern traffic very much, so they stayed home.
Then we were into Hot Rods and Customs.
My youngest son has a collection of Mopar Muscle cars, 'cudas, Chargers and Challengers. His '71 cuda just took a Mopar National's 2nd place at Carlisle.
Nowadays we see lots of Rice Burners and 80's cars.
I, personally like the Rat Rods, just to see the creativity of them. Some are just wildly awesome.
Of course, I still love to see our Letter cars...

Glad you got it sorted out!

I agree on the car shows now-a-days

Most look like late model used car lots any more

Between that ad so called “Rat Rods” I am quick losing my interest in the whole scene

Thanks for all your responses!

A couple weeks ago, I sent out an SOS about my 300-F brakes locking up when the car was hot, with the brake pedal sitting high and hard, and the brake lights staying on.

This week I had my 2 1/2 year old master cylinder replaced, along with all the brake hoses. The old DOT3 brake fluid was flushed, and Castrol LMA (DOT4) fluid was added, on Jack Boyle's recommendation. There was some sediment in the old master, but the old replaced hoses looked good. Mechanic said the brake shoes and drums, wheel cylinders and springs all looked fine.

Testing it out, I went to a local cruise night Friday, and then a 90-mile round trip down to Morris, IL cruise night yesterday - no problems. Next test will be driving the F to Detroit this Friday.

Reporting on Morris, 823 cars yesterday, with only 2 finned Mopars in attendance - my F and Len Lulich's 300-E coupe.
