Never play with faulty brakes. One should never have to mash their brakes all the way to the floor board even if your pads or shoes are low.
There are many things that can cause this. Leaking master cylinder, wheel cylinders or calipers. You must first establish if any of these are faulty.
There is an adjustment on your drum brakes that might need notching up.
In any event if you are not a mechanic or very versed, you should seek the assistance of a technician.
To compensate for the wear on the brakes. As the brake pads wear down, they move closer to the rotors, and this brings the brake fluid level down slightly. Note: it is not a good idea to continually refill the brake fluid reservoir because a mechanic needs to check the level for an estimate of how much the brakes have worn. If the reservoir is full all the time it would appear that the brakes are not wearing down (which we know isn't true).
Not really unless all your brake bads are badly worn down , since abs compensates for the rate of rotation for each wheel so that you brake straight , keeping in mind that the front brakes take the most load and the back brakes take less so you should replace them in sets (front brakes) & (back brakes)
Heres what to do there are two screws on the top and bottom of the brake caliber you unscrew the srews and take the brake caliber off, then use a c-clap to push the plunger like thing back then replace the brakes and rescrew the screws. when all of that is done then you must press on the brake pad until hard so the new brakes ccan realigne themselfs.
If you spring brakes aren't holding, and you haven't backed your slack adjusters off manually or caged your brake chambers, then you have a defective component (or multiple ones) in the brake system. Get it diagnosed and repaired.By the way, the method described below is only applicable to adjusting brake stroke on automatic slack adjusters, which were not mandated until the 1994 model year - if you have a 1986 to 1993 model T600, you likely won't have auto slacks.
By the way it sounds,its not good.You probably need new brake pads,front and back,but for sure the front first if you need to save money.You may just need to put more brake fluid in,or what people call bleed your brakes,not sure how that's done.Maybe just press brake pedal down till the tension catches and the brake pedal is hard to push.If that happens then you know your brakes are catching.good luck.
Short answer: Most likely air in your brake lines which maybe be caused by a leak somewhere. Look up how to bleed your brakes if you are comfortable performing the work, or take it to someone who is. If its just air in the lines, bleeding them will solve the problem. (it would be good to track down WHY there is air in the lines, usually caused by a leak somewhere, or a bad brake master cylinder.) Long answer: If the car will stop, it means that at least some of your brakes are doing their job. For some background knowledge, there are pretty much two types of brakes. They either squeeze or press outward on a metal disc or hub in order to slow the car down. I will use terms like disc and pads, but the same applies to hub and shoes. It takes a good amount of force to stop the car, which is accomplished by hydraulic (fluid) pressure. When you press the brake pedal, the fluid is compressed in the brake lines, which, on the other end, where there is the ability to move, the pads are pressed against the disc. What is most likely making your pedal "drop to the floor" is a leak or air in the brake system. Air is much more compressible that brake fluid, so when you press the pedal, you have to get all of that air compressed where normally there would be brake fluid. This takes much more pedal "travel" and will make your pedal move much more than normal. You want to get the air out of your brake-lines, and make sure there aren't any leaks letting air in (if there are no leaks in any of the brake lines getting fluid all over your brakes, it may be the brake master cylinder). Look up how to bleed your brakes if you are comfortable performing the work, or take it to someone who is. Again, try to track down how the air entered the system in the first place, and make sure you have enough brake fluid.
