Re: Eliminate brake self adjusters?

gba88, I just had a thought about your overheating brakes.

I assume you've replaced the shoes. Check the WIDTH of the
shoes to see if they're wider than factory, and rubbing against the
brake drum. The rubbing would create heat and also jam the shoe
surface against the drum/backing plate when the brakes were applied, creating
even more heat.

The solution would be to grind some metal from the shoe edge to
provide clearance from the drum.
