There is not much online about this one, unfortunately. You may need to spring for a repair manual. As you can see from the index here: http://www.bentleypublishers.com/gallery.htm?code=VG99&galleryId=459#C, there is plenty on it. I would recommend going to ebay and seeing if you can find a repair manual. They usually have them for $5-$20, a worthwhile investment.

Don't bother with the manuals, they also say it's self-adjusting. Barryjay has it right, mess with the boot till you get it right.

What is the boot?
