I tried the testing procedure last night and everything checked out okay, just like it was supposed to. I still get the idle change when pumping though, so I think I'm either going to get a new booster or get the vacuum dealy and check it out, if it's not too expensive. Adjusted one of my rear drums tonight, it seems like that made a difference.

Jeff - I read your writeup and you say there are 8 places to bleed the brakes and 8 places to adjust the wheel cylinders. I only found one place on each of the rear drums to bleed the brakes, which would mean if you have four wheel drums you'd only have 4 places total to bleed your brakes. Maybe I'm missing something?

When I tried to adjust the shoes out, only one of the four adjusters would turn. All the others were...(jammed, stuck, all the way extended,...)...what does that mean? Do I need to replace wheel cylinders now? Or does that just mean that the shoes are all the way against the drum already? I could BARELY hear dragging on either side (that Lockright is loud compared to brake dragging ) any thoughts there? Thanks again guys, I'm getting it figured out...
