hey, im new to this forum and whatnot, and im not sure if im posting this in the right place. but i have a four door 71 torino 500 and i have some oil leakage which im blaming on an old valve cover with a missing bolt. but i think i need to worry about my brakes more. i have front drum brakes and they scare me a little. im hoping just because theyre old but i have to press all the way dont and it doesnt feel like theyre working unless i pump them some then press the pedal all the way down and it only feels like it effects it at all whithin the last 2 inches of the pedal push. ive read that people dont like them and convert them to disk brakes but im not mechanically inclined nore financially able to do this right now. but im wondering maybe the drums are just too old? and if new ones would help out signifigantly. i dont live in a hilly area so gravity wont have much play here. i just need something to stop me.
