    i just bought one of the same year and model and it is doing the same thing, haven't got to work on it yet but i was told it was the adjuster inside the drum was froze up and was letting the slave cylinder over extend, i'm going to try adjustment first, may have to rebuild the slave cylinder or new shoes!
