Left rear wheel HOT!!!

my left rear wheel is getting so hot i cant' even touch it. After driving for an hour. Also when on loose gravel the right rear wheel will spin but the left will not. I'm sure it's the drum but not sure

What is going on?

Re: Left rear wheel HOT!!!

I'm gonna say the brake "cable". My truck and brothers truck had the same problem. The cable is not letting loose all the way. Mine got hot after replacing the shoes. The old drum had a grove in it and the shoe was down to the metal all because the cable wasn't free. Only way for us was to replace the cable.

Well, that depends if he uses the cable..

It wont lock up unless he applies it and then wont release.

Re: Left rear wheel HOT!!!

Depends on how much tension is left on the cable when released. OP is gonna have to say what it's doing.

Re: Left rear wheel HOT!!!

spongy brakes sound like you got a leaky wheel cylinder/line. I'll bet you have a bad axle seal as well back there.

Does the pedal slowly sink to the floor sometimes?

I'll bet thats what froze everything up. I'd have it checked out as soon as possible. Seeing as you use your E brake often, i doubt that is your issue. They usually freeze up from lack of use.

Re: Left rear wheel HOT!!!

To free a stuck e brake and reset your brakes so they dont drag....

drive pritty fast in reverse and hit the brakes hard.

Doing that resets them. I use todo that when my ebrake would stay on.
