Wheel Grab


New Member
I drove my 27 out of the garage for the first time this week.
Ran well down street and stopped well.
Third time out of the garage the right rear wheel had a pronounced thump that was undriveable. I limped back in to Garage and raised it on Jacks. Lugs tight, rotates free and wheel does not have excessive movement when pushed and pulled.
A friend suggested that my self adjusting drums have opened the shoes when backing into garage and are grabbing when vehicle weight is on wheels. I will be backing off adjusters first thing in the morning. Could this be my problem?
Thanks Jeff
Perhaps you could expand more on "a pronounced thump that was undriveable".
