    put some big hours in trying to track down to two major problems with madge

    rear brakes.. which were fine for a while and then started squealing and carrying on including getting as hot as hell.

    both sides had broken leading shoe springs... grrrrrrrrrrrr

    and the other PIA was the carby...

    it has a hairline crack in the tube in the center of the throat...

    what a mongrel to find and an even bigger mongrel to fix i would imagine.
