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?
