My '83 CJ7 has all new brake parts except for prop valve and rotors and drums. Everything else is new. Last winter it had little braking power. Pedal feels fine, just won't stop. When I drug this thing out of the woods the rotors and drums were pretty rusted. I didn't replace them at the time because I wanted to make sure that it was going to run and drive before I wasted money on a luxery like new drums and rotors (who needs brakes anyway). Now, it has been sitting around all summer waiting to be put into winter service. I took it for a road test yesterday.....now I have a red light camera ticket. Not because I didn't know about the camera, or because I was trying to run the light, I was STANDING on the brakes. So, my question is: Drums and rotors? or Prop valve? Everything else is new. I think all 4 brakes are working. Doesn't pull to one side...doesn't stop either.
