Front brakes were previously converted to manual disc. Upon pedal pressure, car pulls to the left. What do i look for? Any help would be appreciated.

Look for a problem on the right side...left side is working fine... ;)

- stuck/seized caliper
- collapsed flex hose (not usually visible externally)
- twisted flex hose (improper installation)
- seized brake pads
- seized caliper sliders

That's a good start for diagnosis.

Whichever way it's pulling, it could be a bad wheel bearing too.
I like to find a big empty parking lot and roll the car fast enough to lock up the brakes. Then I can tell if one is locking (or not locking) by itself.

The pass side grease seal was leaking grease all over the rotor and brake pads. Degreased rotors and pads and changed the $4.00 seal and everything is good to go. They sold me a seal for a 69 Camaro. Seems to be the correct one, however the rubber seal kind of folds onto the spindle edge. I don't know if this is normal, I'm going to watch it closely.
Thanks for all your help guys,,,, I appreciate it...
