Okay, since these special adapters are coming with the gasket sets 
now, lets all of us remember that the GREEN SEALS ARE SPECIAL. So we 
won't use them unless we actually need them.

Pulling to the side is probably a front brake problem. Make sure that 
your brake pedal is always coming ALL the way back to the stop when 
you release it. If its pivot is rusted and preventing this it will 
sometimes give the odd pedal travle symptoms that you describe.

One of the best tests for many kinds of brake problems is to feel 
each disk/drum after a bit of a drive. If you have one that is so hot 
that you burn your finger on it, there's your problem.
