That's a much more sensible idea. :D

well done clanger9 . . . . you were right . . . . . . the pivot pin was out of square thus forcing the brake shoes to migrate up everytime the cam moved them. An application of science and a long tube has straightened it up and bingo all done

Thanks all for your help
