Hi fellow puzzlers,
Need some help to finish my Stinker
36a Government loan installment = T?A?C?E I have this crossed with
24d Biplane, Gipsy = MOTH, 7d Hoarse-sounding = THROATY, 8d Mediterranean sailing boat = FELUCCA, 9d Dissipate = DISPERSE

150a Frumpy = PO?DY I have crossed this with 134d = SHAPE, 151d = OWLISH, 112d = Index of topics = CONCORDANCE

152a Maxim = ?N?ME (I would have put adage but would not fit with d words)
I have crossed this with 116d = Assertively outspoken = OPINIONATED, 153D Violent confusion = MAYHEM, 141d Crooked = ASKEW

227a Pummelled = G?U?D?D I have crossed this with 207d Scorn = DISGUST, 200d Hawaiian city = HONOLULU, 201d Baffle = BEWILDER, 208d Unhappiest = SADDEST

230a Gandhi's loincloth (word I found on net was dhoti, didn't work with cross words) = L?N?U I have crossed this with 206d Dilemma = PROBLEM,
220d Of kidneys = RENAL, 207d Scorn = DISGUST,

228a Namby-pamby = CRYBABY ( this works with all my crosses except the las B) I crossed this with 216d Aviator Amelia = EARHART, 217d Sense of injury = UMBRAGE, 218 Bulging = G??BOUS

Sorry to be so long winded but chances are I have some crosses incorrect too.
Cheers
Smithy
