Frozen (rusted?) brakes
I've been a horrible, bad, no-good person and left my bus undriven for six months. I did start it several times and let it run for a while each time but I know the lack of driving is a sin.
My penance may be that it now doesn't want to move. I can start it and when I shift into gear I can hear and feel the transmission engage. But no movement. With rocking it back and forth from 1st to R, I seem to have freed one rear wheel, which is now able to spin. The other doesn't move.
I suspect my brakes have rusted and the air pressure is not a force that can break it. I recall hearing about being able to knock the brakes/wheel and free it up so the vehicle can be driven, the use of the brakes would then abrade them clean. Can this be done?
