    Campagnolo is everywhere...

    ...even auto mechanics use it





    Thought this was too good not to post.

    P.S.: In case anyone is wondering, this was part of a drastic measure to get a stuck drum off - shoe adjuster had seized solid, locking the pads to the drum.

    Try '79 Continental.

    I did get the thing off though:



    I'm not in the mood to meet to the moron who didn't grease the barrel adjusters on these things. For those who are unfamiliar with the system, drum brakes have a similar self-adjusting getup on them to Raleigh's self-adjusting brake levers.

    So, where is the ear protection? Oh yes, after 2 minutes, temporary threshold shift sets in, and it does not hurt anymore.

    My Honda had one of those adjusters that was stuck as delivered from the factory. I think that car was made on Friday.

    It is a TC, from the era when "Town Car" was a trim/accessory upgrade to the Continental, not a separate model:

    It has a little brother too, which looks far worse today than it does in this photo:



    That one is 4-wheel disc. A whole different set of problems.

    Well, I could tell it was a Ford product anyway.
    Now that I think about it, I've seen that car in your pics before. Reminds me of my '69 Riviera. I miss that car.
    I have spoken.

    THose barrel adjusters can be a PITA. try getting the drums off of a 4 wheel drum setup on a '67 Chevy C10 after being on gravel for 8 years. What did you end up doing, cutting off the center section of the drum? I've found that you can drill out the adjuster, then get a grinder in there and split it in half. Only had to do that once though. Even the '67's adjusters started to move after being PB blasted.

    Dang, those pics are making me want to get a hotrod Lincoln. Not as old, however. There's a 1988 Mark VII LSC I've been eying with a $600 price tag - interior is shot, 'lectric seats kinda work, sunroof leaks, electric windows work on driver's side only, rear airbag shocks are mostly shot. The 5.0 HO runs pretty darn well, though.

    And I've read around that the DeTomaso Vallelunga came not only with Campagnolo wheels, but Campy disc brakes too!

    Bingo - had to cut out the center of the drum. I would have tried getting the adjuster from the slot in the back, if it weren't for the fact that the lower shock absorber mount sits practically in FRONT of the darn hole. To make matters more complicated, the swingarm sits directly behind the shock mount, ensuring that nothing will ever get back there other than the adjuster tool itself.

    I found myself using a spoke to push the adjuster catch back; worked surprisingly well.

    With exception to the air shocks, those aren't bad machines. Not my style, but quite decent. The Mark VIII's that followed though - now there's a disaster.

    Interesting, that I didn't know. Do they stop like Campy sidepulls?
