This is for a 34 Chevy Master.
My linkage seems to be binding or stuck. It appears to be at the pivot area where the linkage rods connect to what I’ll call the pivoting pin (this has the rods and springs connected to it)
Does this pivot suppose to move freely. Also there appears to be a bushing on the ends. See the screw driver pointing to it.
I can’t find any close up pictures or descriptions.
I have 2 of the rods disconnected already.
How can I repair this to get my rear brakes working?

It should rotate freely. Will need to be removed, rust removed, greased and reassembled.

Gene,
Thanks for the help on my 34 master brake linkage. I had to rework the rear adjusters and linkage. (It was rusted up).
I now have another issue. The car stops but my right rear wheel seems to be bound up. When driving the car it turns ok. But when I tried to adjust the brakes, I can’t get the wheel to even turn by hand when it’s jacked up.

Any ideas as to why it would be bound up? Do I need to pull the axle?

I am afraid that you will neeed to pull the axle/drum.

I was afraid of that. Thanks again.
Any idea what I should look for when I get the axle out?

Going by what you found so far I would guess rust.

I hope you have a shop manual.

While you are inspecting everything, make sure the part of the brake cam lever that fits onto the brake shoe cam's shaft is free to rotate inside the cam lever's housing. Remove the adjusting screw from cam lever, and inject chassis grease in there. Reinstall the adjusting screw, and force the grease into the housing.
