"96" Z-71 brake problem today

Recommended Posts

Today I had my buddy back the trailer into the lake like normal and when I had the boat loaded the truck wouldn't move forward So then he got out and I got in and put it in 4 DIG and still couldn't go in reverse or forward, so then put in 4 LOW and then I was able to drag the right rear tire up the ramp and then once I got out of the way I put it in reverse and then finally under a lot of torque she broke loose.

What could be causing this and whats the best remedy for it?

A little bit on saturday. I had to back the truck in a ways at shallow access to unload. But then drove it 60 miles back home that day and had no problems unloading the boat this morning and actually my P brake is disconnected for a couple years now kind of a wierd deal if you ask me and I am mechanically inclined, but have never witnessed a brake doing that before.

Quick ? for ya by the way How do ya quote just a portion of somebody's reply Not very computer inclined laugh

I'll have to think about the brakes over night but I would bet it had something to do with them being wet. It wouldn't hurt to give them or at least the side that was hung up, a good once over just to make sure everything is in its correct place!

The edited quote, simple click the quote bottom on the bottom of the post you want to quote. Highlight everything you want to delete and delete it. Do not delete anything that is in the "[" "]" or the "[" "]".

You didn't say if it was drum or disc rear, but being a 96 I assume its drum. Depending on what hardware was left in place or removed, it could be related to the E-brake being disconnected. Otherwise it sounds like it could be a brake lining delaminated from the shoe and jammed. In any case its time to pull the drum and do an inspection.

Another way to do a quote is to high lite what you want, copy, click the "switch to full reply screen" then click on the quotation marks, then paste it in between the quotaion marks.

It could be just from the water, but I would pull it apart and check it out as well!

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
