  • 1961 hawk emergency cable +backup switch

    I think I am missing a bracket or something. What retains the front emergency brake cable outer housing at the rear of it ?Also who might have available a backup switch and rod for a 1961 hawk 4-speed ?

      SI has that BU switch in their catalog. part# 1553052 $85 bucks![:0]

      The link is 1553200 but you'll have to call them to see if they have it. I checked SASCO's site and both numbers don't come up.[}]
