Ok here's a question for you Mafac fans. What brake pads do you use? I've been using Racers on the braze-on mounts on the Centurion and the power is great, but the howling is the worst I've heard. I know all the tricks for stopping the howling and have never had this much trouble. My next trick is to replace the original 4-dot pads with something else. I have plenty of non-classic pads that will work but does anyone have specific pads they like for Mafac brakes? Thanks, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Can't stand the noise in Santa Barbara, Calif.
