hi noel

i just cleaned the drum and backplate with methylated spirits. its highly volatile so it only takes minutes to fully evaporate- then you're good to go.

A friend of mine suggested that i might have been turning the hub nut the wrong way; something to do with the thread system on the car. he suggested i should have turned it clockwise since the anticlockwise motion removed the oppsing nut??

not sure myself. does sound like something the french would do kidding

have you heard of this?
