    Jag Parking brake cable advice

    We have the Jag axle on the car assembled and have bought an XJ6 cable however it does not look as if it will fit the calipers. Does anyone know if they are XJS ones please?

    You appear to have to have two actuators of the same type, one should be flat to take the U shaped end with a pin and split pin through it. As far as I know all of these calipers are the same on the IRS up to 1986 although I have seen a photo of one with a fancy crank type mechanism that sits between the two actuators. Mine all have one of what you show on one side and one of these the other

    I had a look at my Haynes manual and it's as I said although if you google it there are pictures of what you have with a different end on the cable (possibly as you have but without the U section) to slot in one side

    why not try it.all looks like normal stuff.

    the threaded end goes through the left one,then through the right and then the put the nut on.the stepped outer should sit in the left hand one.

    its that simple

    Looking elsewhere it seems you may have XJS actuator arms on the callipers and an early XJ6/Stype/Mk10 cable.
