1937 Tandem Hub Brakes
The restoration of my 1937 tandem is 99% complete.
I am however having trouble getting the brakes to work correctly, they have new brake shoes, they all fit Ok, the cables are correctly adjusted etc.
Does any tips as to how I can make them more efficient, do they need bedding in? someone has suggested that I score the shoes but I am reluctant to do that unless you think that it may help. It has also been suggested that I emery paper the hubs to take away any residual dust etc. from the old brake shoes.
