Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed. Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts where the adjustment is to adjust up until the shoes start to grab the drum and then back off 4 clicks. When checking one side tonight it seems they required many more clicks than 4 to get them to grab.
can being unadjusted too much make them grab? When I put it all back together originally I would have adjusted as per the manual. But they have always been a problem.
Yes quite the detective. We would call him a "Bloody Legend" here in Australia :)

Gents, just letting you know that I have fitted the new backing plates supplied by Jason and some new brake shoes and the brakes are completely different and the way they ought to be.
thank you all for your help.
That's fantastic news! Glad they worked out well.
Love ——-when a problem repair posted on this site get resolved by the passionate 63-64 Cadillac owners and others who live on this site to get them thru there issues and back on the road
We all learn a lot about the subject of our pride and joy Cadillacs
The resulting repair needed on this post was an education to me with the bent brake back plate being a big part of the problem
