88 Sammi brake problem

Brakes are fine when cold. Bleed them and have firm pedal. When they get hot, the front brakes locking up tight until they cool back down. Do these have porpotionate valves that could be clogged? Found diverter valve under right front frame, is there a valve inside of this? Took off caliper and manually pushed piston back when cold and watched fluid raise back up in resivor. No problem when cold.

Hmmm when hot only? I'm lost.

are they getting overly hot, possibly boiling the fluid, creating pressure.

off topic... sounds like its time for yota axles
