Good heater is that.

Needed a wall mounted affair n this popped up for 100.

From what i remember the old twin leading shoe brakes were pretty good especially if you fitted the Ferodo (spelin ) green linings if set up correctly, even the old single leading shoe full width were not bad and a dam sight more reliable than the bloody disc's of today

You just might be onto something with a hydraulic puller but i would worry that you may not get enough feel
But you won't know until you try and it looks easy enough to revert back to the original adjuster

Bloody lovely work mind Dai

Blimey Saddlworth Moor! That's a place!

I'm so glad I've retired and work(?) in a nice cosey(ish) man cave! Even though I haven't got the toys like you have! Not that I could use them even if I did! That's some workshop of yours matey!
