it seems no mater how i adjust,they seem to grab real bad and the more i use them,the worst they get.either front or rear will jerk whole truck,not a smooth braking.

Couple of questions
Did you use the original Cen flywheel with 4 shoe clutch?
How was the shift into third with the new motor?

No I used a standard 3 pin
shifting was not an issue due to the higher revs.Just needs to adjust the shoes to suit.

I use 2 springs on each of the brake rods a soft one and a hard one. On initial braking the soft spring compresses giving just a small amount of braking when the soft spring is completley compresed the harder spring takes over for those OH S..T there is a tree in the way moments!
