Just bought a 91 Mazda and when you hit the brakes they seem to lock right up.
They get better the more you use them?

Anyone got any ideas why?

if its rears you most likely have a wheel cylinder leaking brake fluid onto yer shoes and you would get lock up fer sure.

ps: there's no Mazda room so

when forklifts sit for awhile the brakes get touchy. i just ride them for a bit. but dont over heat them

Yea if its been sitting the rotors and drums are probably rusted up will take a bit to smooth them back out and make them less touchy

anti sieze on the caliper slide pins and on the ends of brake shoes make things stick less. that is of course if the wheels are off and your actually working the brakes.

They are touchy everytime you drive it , after you use them a bit they work OK?
So its not from sitting long periods like I thought to start with?

rust on the rear drums.

As stated, each tiem you get in it, ride them for a bit. After a few days or weeks it will stop.

I know that sounds incorrect, but it normally works

Have you even looked at the brakes? Rears might be way out of adjustment or spring could be broken or adjuster seized, i would open everything up and check it out replace what needs to be and lube everything up.
