Brake Trouble

I got my Thing inspected.  It failed only because of a broken windshield wiper motor.  I have since fixed the motor (more on this later) ... but on the way home from the shop, the front left brake locked.  I'm not sure if it was the stress of its first car full of people, or "Mechanic's Entropy," but as Rytek pointed out the star adjuster nuts are VERY rusty.

I am probably going to replace the adjusters and wheel cylinders all around, and bleed the system.  I will decide once I get a look inside.  Step 1, though, is to get the drum off.  I have been on Step 1 all day.
