I would suggest that the Tenor at Whalley, Lancs (where I rang for 
many years) should be one of the first for this remedy.
The clapper was changed in the 1980s, and origonal was substituted 
for the present clapper when it broke.
What was once a fine bell (all eight were cast in 1924- Part of 
Taylors "Rolls Royce" period), is now really a 22cwt bucket. A shame.
