You want the rear drums to be smaller than the front, the front does 75% or so of the braking. I have 12" fronts and 10" rears. I didn't think about the shoes being so hard they were fading, sounds like you're on the right track now.

Ok so battling mosquitoes at the crack of dawn wearing one of those headband lights I attacked the front. The verdict is that what look to be at one time brand new shoes were over adjusted and got too hot.

The pedal now has more travel but stop much better, I probably need to get the back tightened up a little and maybe a notch or two on the front. Car rolls much better.

The next time I do brakes its going to be the dual MC and the front disc kit.

Thanx again, great bunch of knowledgables here
