Re: Visit to the Henry Ford Museum

Make sure you visit the village. Takes you back in time. The museum is also very interesting. Like others said, take two days.

Re: Problem adjusting one of the front brakes

I'm not above calling someone to help, I was just hoping someone here has experienced this before. I have that Les Andrews book you mentioned as well as a few others that were referenced yesterday.

Re: Problem adjusting one of the front brakes

Re: Problem adjusting one of the front brakes

The rods are new but the scenario I describe is happening with the rods disconnected so they're not a factor. I'll have to look into what a pill is under the vertical actuating rod. I'm not real...
