Well, thankfully the dribble of oil, grease or other shiny substance appearing at the edge of my brake drum appears to be tiny, and dry.
Pulling the brake apart took me fifteen minutes, thanks to the front stand, a wonderful invention - not only because it lifts the wheel off the ground, but also because it stops the headstock swinging about.
|So easy to use...|
This is the leading shoe, a little high in the middle - maybe about 60-70% contact:
|Leading shoe wear|
|Trailing shoe wear|
As for the grease, just a little dribble. We will clean that up tomorrow.
And there is a lucky eBay find on the way!
