    Hey Guys, I recently bought a 70 mach 1 that has sticking front disc brakes. They appear to be granada calipers. Trying to decide if i should go with new granada replacements or change back to original. Are there any advantages to staying with the granada style? Seems like the original floating style would be less prone to sticking? I have spare 69-70 spindles and caliper bracket hardware.​

    they are all about the same. if the calipers are sticking, then start with the guide pins they run on. clean them up really nice and lube them. that should cure the problem right there.

    its probably the calipers .they are simple to rebuild all they have is a square type o ring the kit cost very little .they get dirt and rust in front of the puck
    and that makes them stick.

    I changed the Granada calipers and pads over the weekend. Unfortunately the fronts are still dragging somewhat. I wonder if there is some sort of distribution block/ proportioning valve problem?
