Hello tmac. Ed here I am going to try to post a couple of pics to see if by chance you see anything unusual with them. I am still having the same problem as you with my elgin. One question, are these lever set or set by stem? I have noticed, if lever set the lever has been chewed-up and the stem set also fubared,(funked-up beyond all recognition.) Learning on halved-as_ equipment. Maybe by chance these pics will assist you also with your endeavor, doubtfully though. Fox walking-on my issue with caution. (DOUBLE SLOW…..) Hey anyway T, have a safe and merry XMAS….. Ed.
PS, pics seem not to want to comply. New computer still learning it. As time goes on I’ll get it. 😥 😥 👿
