That sounds intriguing. I have a '69 Tourer w/wire wheels.  The cable 
for it doesn't have a rectangular box, AIR.  The repro cable - from Moss 
yrs ago - was a tad too long.  Moss called it specification drift, fer 
Pete's sake.  The only way I've been able to keep the handbrake working 
is to keep the rear shoes pretty tight.  I wonder if I could use the 
later cable.  What does it look like?  Pics?
