      I would get it off the ground and spin the wheels by hand to see if there is any vibration in the wheel bearings. Then maybe have someone ride in the back to listen to the differential. Actually I think I would service the rear end anyway, after rotating the tires. You will find it eventually. 🙂

        I would start with the easy stuff and check your U joints and motor mounts.

            Is it the rotors that have the drum parking brake fitted inside the rotor.? I would lube that parking brake cable real good and pull on it until it is freed and working.

              Did you pull the rotor off and inspect it real good before you put the pads on ?

                I have to agree with Jotman.If you grab the upper radiator hose and check to see if has pressure and you can actuaily keep your hand on it ,its a bad thermostat,if there is no pressure its the pressure cap.

                  Is the fluid returning back into the Master Cylinder when the pedal is pushed? If not adjust the pedal higher until it does. If the fluid gets hot it expands.If it can not expand back to the reservoir it expands pressure on the brakes. The vent holes are where the fluid retuns in the reservoir not the booster.

                    If the vent ports are blocked for any reason the brakes may self apply.Expanded hotter brake fluid needs to be able to return back into the reservoir. To check, look into the top of the reservoir while someone is pressing the pedal. If you do not see fluid returning,spurting back in they are blocked. I would adjust the pedal to a higher level if the fluids not returning. FIRST check to see if the fluid is at the right height,If the brakes are half worn the fluid should be half full.To much fluid also has no room to expand and can cause self-apply. Always DOUBLE CHECK they are working properly before you drive .

                      I start with a cool engine. Drain and leave the petcock open. Stick a running garden hose in radiator. Let it fill up. With the hose still running start the engine Turn the heater on wide open. Keep it full until the water is clear flowing out. Cut the engine off. Let it drain Close the petcock. Pour half a gallon of straight coolant in. Fill the rest with 50/50. Then finish exactly like Eric does in his video. If your worried about the correct mixture hydrometers are cheap.The freezing point should read -34 degrees. I think the pressure caps are overlooked a lot .They really do more than people realize.Make sure you replace it with the correct one. This is just how I do this and I am always open to constructive criticism.

                        Since Amsoil is a sponsor I wiil definately be using there oil from here out.It shows what a great company they are. I used Amsoil in my Harley Davidson up until the bike shop closed where I got it from .As soon as I find out where to get it it will be going in my truck to.

                            Just think a sheet of index paper is 10 thousands thick. Most the time your only taking off 2 thousands on each side. Shops without a lathe though can charge cystomers double for new rotors and make cash. Or save the customer some cash and make some too.

                              I would check to see if there is fluid spurting up thru the master cylinder reservoir when an assistant presses the pedal. If no fluid its a possibility your pedals out of adjustment and blocking the vent ports. Then again just having too much fluid in the reservoir,or contaminated fluid can also be the culprit. Make sure both vent ports are spurting fluid.

                                Sounds like another case of lighter smaller cheaper. You go in for one safety issue and find another, Have you ever had a hood fly up in your face while going down the highway?Why would they repair one safety issue and let you drive away with another? while making it look like your to blame.HMMMMMM wonder how many more plastic hood latches are failing? It would be definately in there best interest to handle a safety issue quickly, sometimes smart business practices pay off. I would let the manager or local rep at least know how you were treated. Successful bussiness’s only thrive from good customer service! NOT letting customers leave with safety issues.

                                  Nice Lathe ! I want one for Christmas. The lathe we use just has two speeds,and we are supposed to do two pass’s, the first a fast clean up pass then a slower smoother pass. During the slow pass I have time to work on something else. Our guard mounts on the hole between the bits and the cone and spring goes on the otherside of the rotor,everyhing else looks pretty much similar.Except for the Quick mounts. Your only dealing with a couple of thousands of an inch just to resurface. Nice Video
