Hi fellas
I have this f**k rubbing sound coming from the rear of the old EL its driving me nuts. It only occurs when going relitivly slowly and cornering. I think it may have something to do with the hand brake assembly cause when its happning i can slowly pull the handbrake on and it gets worse.
Any help on what could be causing this would be great.

The hand brake is a drum brake inside the disk. You possibly have a buildup of brake dust in there or they need adjusting or somthing is loose or broken in there. either way it might be time to pul the disks off and inspect.
