Ive covered 350 mile over the last 2 days and im 100% convinced the wonky cylinder was the problem. I adjusted the both drums on saturday the way ive always done them manually and both are perfect now. Both are warm to the touch after a motorway drive with little or no heavy braking. The problematic one would normally show within 100 miles and would be too hot to touch.

Ill leave it another week and if alls good ill comfirm and close the thread.

Just confirm this problem is now resolved. Ive covered 600 miles + with no reoccurring issues. Nice cool drums as they should be unless id been braking heavy.

So to conclude. It appears the wonky brake cylinder was at fault. Im unsure how its become so badly twisted. There was a bit of rust but nothing of any concern. Quick wire brush and it appeared to be more brake dust than rust. The rear plate was inspected and it was structurally sound around the area so a new cylinder was fitted for good measure. Pretty sure id have got away without replacing it but the boot was ripped so just changed it for good measure.
