Hi Tim,

Thanks for the comments.

Some technical stuff....the actuating force (from the handbrake handle) and the resultant force transmitted to the cables are almost parallel in the longitudinal direction (the slight difference being that the handbrake handle is mounted to the tunnel, which of course isn't parallel). This results in the transverse component of the force being very low and the load on the bracket being minimal. It all operates as smoothly and as positively as I thought it would.

Yes, enough to keep me busy, so maybe when everything else is ticked off, I can come back and add that Delrin bush

What’s your mileage count on that lovely ERA 289FIA of yours?
