I've just replaced my front brakes (including calipers) on my 1975 Corvette C3. As I test drove it, the vehicle pulls to the left when I applied the brakes. Can anyone tell me what's up? Thanks.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My question stated it all.  I bleed the brakes, and lubed it also.

First, I am no Corvette expert. But generic automobile knowledge says that the right side is not being applied with equal pressure, the left side is grabbing harder. The entire system may need to be bled (yes, again) .... the proportioning valve may be bad, fluid pressure to the right side may still have air in it.... the new pads and /or calipers not installed correctly. Just throwing guesses

another thing to look at would be the flex hoses
