A long sory but we have a Volvo axle on our 34' Ford. To save space etc and be to clever for own own good we have a foot/parking braked mechanism from a Mercedes. The one which has the lever under the steering wheel to release. What we want to do is put the old hand braked
lever without the mechansim under the foot brake unit and connect the two!!
To do that we need longer hand brake cables. Who does them and as a guide how much can I expect to pay.

Speedy Cables can do them to pattern or drawing. I usually have new inners made by local yacht chandlers in stainless rigging wire.

Kev,
thanks for the reply. How much can I expect to pay from Speedy?
(the yachting chandlers may be my first port of call - forgive the pun!)

Sorry,no idea but I think they do an online quote ? Also I think Speedograph Richfield may do them .

The chandlers do a variety of ends, some with threaded posts or eyelet style fitting , so lots of flexibility in the set up..good luck.
