There are a lot of possible methods which are false in the plain course and
not in the same lead, for example those where the falseness occurs in the
last section and which have a half lead of 18. An example is
e -38-1456-56-16-12-58.34.1256-18
which has a reasonable line,  ABa falseness and a true peal is possible
keeping the tenors together.
A simple composition including some nice 87s and nearly all the work is:

1 2 3 (3245678)
  p* b (2536478)
p p b  (5624378) A
2A     (4362578)
p p s  (3245687)
2A     (5624387)
p b b  (6425387)
2A     (5342687)
p p s  (3256478)
4A     (5342678)
p p s  (3256487)
b p b (3264587)
p p s  (2435678)
Repeat twice
Start at snap in lead p*
96 crus
(each course is 3 leads long thus avoiding the falseness)
