Default brake squeak

My recently restored 36 has a single wheel squeak when the brake is applied, but only the last 10-20 feet before a completed stop. I have driven 100 miles on the new shoes and no change. Any ideas? Thanks Bruce

sounds like a little oil/grease is on the lining. try spraying brake cleaner on the shoes--hard to do but try

I'd keep driving it. Are the shoes chamferred on the leading/trailing edges??

Squeaks are usually from the metal to metal parts. My dad has a squeak in his Model a and I lubricated all the rollers pins and what not and that pretty much cleared it up. Used permatex brake grease.

not necessarily, shoes & disc pads with sharp 90 deg, edges can squeal.

While chamferring, lightly run some 600 grit over the shoes and brake drum to remove any junk that may be on there.
