Guys,

Changed the oil and inspected the screen (absolutely no lint or debris), looking at my low band lining thoughts on if it should be changed and if the band is the easier style with ears?
Reverse drum is a little pitted but I'm not going to worry about that....

Seems as though you have more adjustment threads left on the external adjuster & the spring isn't close to being compressed.

Unless changed out at some time by a previous owner, chances are those are not "demountable" ear bands but you should be able to see if by chance they are, by inspecting the driver's side band - you should be able to verify.

I should clarify - if installed correctly, the removable ear should be on the driver's side (pedal side) but I have seen them installed opposite !

Can't see enough to tell, John. I doubt if you can tell the condition of the lining by looking here. If it's grabbing well and you have adjustment left it's OK I'd think. No lint is good !!

Need a view a bit deeper into the inspection hole to tell if you have quick change bands.

Just seeing the top little bit really does not tell the overall condition of the bands. They could look good on the top and be completely gone on the bottom.
