I just purchased a 1966 T-Bird. I have two problems.

Asked by Feb 11, 2017 at 12:01 PM about the 1966 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1. I had the brakes redone (front disc, rear drums).  When I apply brakes, front wheels grab.  Does a nose stand.  I have had them adjusted a few times but they still grab.  2.  I have a 428 engine and have had it completely tuned up, wires, plugs, points but it still starts with difficulty ( when cold ).  Anyone have ideas?

Check your brakes proportioning valve. Check fuel pressure and carb's accelerator pump for hard starts.

Choke needs to be checked and possibly adjusted.

What did you do to fix grabbing disc brakes???
