Re: Hung brake? Sticking brake?

SteveI don't see what model Crosley you have but I had that problem with my 1949 Crosley Hotshot with 4 wheel disc (spot) brakes. The problem turned out to be the right emergency brake linkage. It was not releasing until I gently moved the lever at the rear backing plate. That released the brake lock up. Still haven't found a real fix but I just don't use the ebrake anymore.

Steve, my experience with something like that was not with a Crosley so I do not know if it equates but is worth looking at. On mine the brake pedal was not coming fully up and so the master cylinder was not releasing the pressure. It would build and build until it locked the brakes. After it sat for awhile it would release on its own. Lubed the brake pedal and made sure it was fully retuning after it was pressed. It then didn’t give me anymore trouble. Kent
