Ford 9' rear will not roll backwards
Posted to Technical Discussion Forum on 10/14/2013 22 Replies

I bought this truck which had been sitting for about 5 years. The truck can not be pulled backwards, the rear end stays locked up and the tires just drag like the brakes are locked. I have jacked it up and removed the driveshaft, same issue. I have not removed the drums to check the brakes out, but while jacked up the tires can be spun by hand in either direction. It has the 9" rear end. Thank you in advance for your advice.
