Thanks Jon, and yes, Id rather not add another tone brace behind the new bridge. I dont know about the Cole Clark specs, but do know they fix this problem by flattening the bump (I dont know how though), sanding the bottom of the bridge to give the required action, and adding another brace (I dont know where exactly, but assume its where the bump was).

I have been trialing for a few days in the current very wet weather placing a heavy glass bead bag which molds to the hump area, including over the cracked bridge, and sealing the sound hole. I removed the weight yesterday and the wings have come back in contact with the bodytop. So I think I will remove the bridge soon and thereby its bracing effect, and see what happens with another few days with weight on the bump.
