Springer brake cable installation

#1

Post by Eric » Sun Jul 26, 2009 4:01 pm

Can someone tell me the correct way to install the brake cable in the anchor at the brake arm? Does the cable go straight through or
does the cable go straight through and then looped back through the nut. I have looked for pictures but uable to find any clear enough. all information will be appreciated.
Thanks
Eric

Dear Eric,

It goes back up through the nut.

If you cut the cable with a torch to weld the strands together, it makes it much easier.

'Spectful,

I just put a new cable on mine, it loops around and gets clamped tight I cut mine with the cutting part of a pair of Vise-grips, snaps it off clean and even.
