Thank you Peter and Amulheirn. Karl, dont stop the charm lessons just yet. Gerry’s thoughts were that the push rod for the front brakes should be as close to the fulcrum as possible without touching and with the rear about 1/4 of an inch out (nod to Roger) but the final adjustment was also affected by whether or not you had drum or disc brakes, with drum brakes having more “grab”. Clearly, there is no obviously clear consensus. Stu was helpful as when asked by the examiner why he had not welded the lock nuts pointed out that welding inside a car, especially a GRP car, had a certain fire risk and the examiner was happy with the drilled and roll pinned bar. Now, I shall go and find that manual..............
