I am currently working on my 1978 Cadillac Hess & Eisenhardt LeCabriolet Convertible. It has sat for many years and now is experiencing brake problems.
The front Calipers have been slowly freezing up (uniformly). Then after a few hours they release. To remedy this, I have replaced the front calipers/pads and hoses, bled the front brakes and it tested out OK. Then I got her out on the higway and the slow freezing up of the calipers has returned. Suggestions on what to do next? Ironically, this has all happened after a replacement of vacuum hoses in the engine compartment. But the Power Booster shouldn't affect this right??
Thanks for your time,

Re: '78 LeCabriolet Brakes
Anyway, you got my main suspect the hoses already, so since it seems to be mainly heat related (highway driving, and releases when its cool) I'd probably check the sliders next, make sure there greased well and move freely (If its a floating style caliper that is.... If I remember right it is.)
