<font face="Arial" size="2">Are the brake linings new ? Remember that on one of the rear shoes the lining must be shorter - if that isn't done the brakes can lock when hot. </font>

Rubber brake lines are date coded. Usually bad hoses are either good or
bad regardless of drive time. Master cylinders have a valve plate. All
it takes is some dirt. Weak springs and a rough cylinder. Maybe You put
front rubbers in backwards. Or one of the fronts in backwards. This is
actually very easy and common mistake. Later Dave the Wave
