    Can you cut/notch the fender where the interference occurs? Pictures would help us visualize your predicament.

    Try putting the wheel, tire and all, inflated to working pressure or above, back into the water and see where the air is coming from. Whatever is leaking may not be doing it under the low pressure...

    I use the Park MLP-1 and it is fine, no installation tool required. The MLP-1.2 looks like it has narrower jaws, perhaps for very narrow chains.

    Worn tools, even of high quality, are also likely to round out sockets. Consider hex drivers consumable items. You can sometimes get more life out of them by grinding the worn end back to sharp...

    Suggestions: Check the compatibility of your shifter with the mountain RD.

    Skip the 11-tooth small cog. 50 X 12 is still over 110 gear inches on 700 X 28 tires (50 X 11 is over 120); 11-tooth...

    Have you used a torque wrench to tighten the BB? It takes a surprising amount of force and I am sure I would under-torque them without using one.

    I am not sure a cartridge BB will hold any...

    Two questions occur to me:

    Why does your present BB keep coming loose? Will a new one solve this problem; if not why replace it?

    Yours sounds like a classic case of cable friction. Have the cables been lubed/replaced/attended to in any way?

    Often a crankset/bottom bracket package deal ends up being nearly the same/cheaper than just a crankset, and you can be assured that they will work together.

    "Also I'm on 26” wheels which screws up comparisons to 700 mm."

    Not if you make your comparisons in terms of gear inches; the wheel/tire size falls out of the calculation so the gear inch measure...

    I use WACOM styli at work and at home. The Bamboo line is a lower-cost line and is good for home use; I use an Intuos for heavy-duty CAD work, at my job. Trying to draw with a mouse seems outright...

    Is your derailleur capable of a 28-tooth cassette? Not all are.

    I always count on readjusting my derailleur whenever I change cassettes, even like for like, due to manufacturing tolerances.

    I think what is possible is that your chain checker is lying. Get yourself a decent steel rule and measure the chain with that; chain checkers are notoriously inaccurate and often are pessimistic...

    A chainring with the teeth removed makes a fine bashguard and can often be had for nothing if the teeth are worn out.

    How about getting a large industrial plastic bag (a local factory may discard them) and using that to hold the frame and solution?

    Since the cassette's large cog is outside of the published derailleur limits, it stands to reason that some of the adjustments (B-screw for example) could be expected to "hit the stop". Running with...

    I'd be concerned that the WD-40 with its oils, solvents and who-knows-what else would be more likely to have an adverse affect on your framesaver than the dried coating of rust remover. I believe...

    A couple of rinses with pure alcohol (not 70% rubbing alcohol) should combine with and take the water out of your frame after a thorough rinsing. It should then evaporate quickly, leaving the frame...

    I meant for the over-locknut measurement, which the OP states they were unable to make due to interference by the spokes etc.
