I have a 1986 Dodge ram truck(D150, 2wd) that has the front pass. side brake "hang`n on me", pulls real hard to the right after stopping at times. I took the caliper off last week & cleaned the mount & caliper w/a wire brush hoping that was what was hanging but it did it to me again coming home from town lastnite. When I had it apart, I even got me a c-clamp, loosened the bleeder valve & pushed the piston in to make sure it would move, sure did, squirted myself w/brake!Not in the eyes at least. But I just wondered from any of you BTDT folks can verify that my diagnosis of the caliper just being worn out is the correct 1?
Thanks in advance!

Most of the time when a vehicle pulls hard to right or left, it is because one of the front brakes ISN"T working. If it pulls hard right it means that the right brake is working very well, and the left one is not. Check out the left brake.

86 is old enough where the closed up hose thing could be happening.It will look like a triangle inside that wont let fluid return.[I mean a tight little closed triangle].If one hose is doing it the others may soon follow.Its just age setting in the rubber.

Had ones to do this on a Ford truck. It turned out to be the hose was breaking down internally and would not let the fluid return. New hose fixed it up.

Pappy is right. Try to push the piston back with the bleeder closed.
