Default Re: at wit's end

crazy may be where I'm going with this soon

noticed arms were loose & could wiggle even when brake was grabbed tight - took em off & found the brass tubes were not set out enough to take up slack between spring housing & arm - used a drift to reseat tube in arm until with arm installed there was a slight drag when moved (no wiggle even when released)

no improvement again

have another used set of black arms that were scratched up - painted and will try with them when they dry tomorrow

not sure I'll try dirt, as I have mostly sand & damp soil here, but I have a pair of new chrome arms that I may try (and then have to buy matching for rear)

tomorrow will be fifth day working on this bike that I only hope to make $100 on : (
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
