Most of the time brakes stayed locked indefinitely, but every once in a while they would bleed off. Not while the truck was running though, just when parked for a while.
I'm now leaning towards going ahead with it, if nothing else than it'll give me an easy way to do burn-outs
And secondly I'll have a backup parking brake, along with my factory parking brake when working on the car. I'm now paranoid about the slipping into reverse tendency of this trany.
Besides, I think I'm going the hot rod route with this car anyway, next is a set of 3.90 gears. Already have a 3rd member with these gears setup and ready to go.
Thanks for the info.
