    Glad to see you getting some maintenance accomplished. I have never had great luck adjusting and servicing drum brakes on any of my cars.

      Opportunity for a DIY. I'll take some pictures as I go when the hardware gets here.

      Edit: Parts were all available today. Installed everything and adjusted. Unfortunately, one of the wheel cylinders popped out when I installing the main spring, just required bleeding after putting it all back together. Brakes were MUCH firmer during a short drive around the block. I'll see what there is in the DIY section and either add to it or create a new one.

        Haven't gotten to the DIY yet. Had to get out of the house for a while today. Decided on a 400 mile tank challenge. West Chester to Dayton to Indianapolis to Louisville to Lexington to around Cincinnati to West Chester. Maximum sustained speed 62 mph (tried not to impede traffic too much), unfortunately at least a 1/2 hour stop/go stretch in southern IN. 449.4 miles, fuel light came on (haven't taken it that low in a long time - at least I know it still works) briefly at 448 miles. Filled up at the same pump as before I left. 13.795 gallons, 32.577 mpg.

            ... That is unfortunate, hopefully it is in the hands of someone who will try to keep it on the road for a bit.
