Before I go off on my own furrow, making up handbrake cables and parts I though I would just see if one of you has already done something same or similar. I have upright Prefect with Anglia axle under the standard transverse spring. I want to use the standard walking stick handbrake lever under the dash. I want to use twin cables from the axle and already have suitable brackets fitted for this pulling the original type brake levers using 1/4" pins and clevises. So I will run the cables forward to a point roughly by the back of the gearbox as this is handy to mount the relay lever and tension balancing unit. I understand the relay lever should give additional leverage and length of pull to suit the walking stick. So, has anyone done something similar on this car or a Pop or an Anglia? and if so did you use a donor cable(s) or make up the whole thing from parts. I am ok making a cable as done many for big capacity bikes and the clutch cable for one of those is about the size I imagine.
I have been searching the net and ebay for parts but nearest yet is Venills but the cable listed is only up to 2 or 2.5mm and I am thinking 3mm perhaps plus a chunky outer sleeve. Has anyone any suggestions for a supplier of cable and clevises etc so I can source the right bits? - Dave
