Thanks again to all the helpful comments that are posted in response to this and other questions, as these have been extremely helpful in my quest to bring back to life our 1980 international. We just recently purchased our 1980 International and upon trying to get it declared street legal in Virginia, I took it for its safety inspection. It failed due to the fact that the electric brake magnets were shot, worn down well past seeing wire. After some helpful suggestions on this post, I ordered all new brakes, magnets, drums and such from a popular online supplier. I put the NevR Adjust Brakes on exactly as per the dealers instructions, tightening until the wheel cannot turn and then backing it off 10 clicks. Trailered them for a while testing them out and they seemed to be much improved from what the trailer came with. Upon taking the trailer to the same inspector, his first statement was these won't pass, because when I spin the wheel with the trailer jacked up and the brakes not applied the wheel should only turn 2 or 3 turns before coming to a stop. I thought "Wow" are you serious? What about the drag that you are suggesting I should always be putting on my AS wheels having the brakes so tight? After I told him I would pay for him to tighten the brakes a couple more clicks until they would pass, he told me he would pass me if I promised to do such when I returned home... Thanks I said. So here I am and my question is just this: Should the brakes be so tight that upon spinning the wheel as hard as I can it stops after only 2 or 3 turns without the brakes being applied? This seems counter intuitive. Any help is appreciated.
