Triumph TR6 - Hand Brake Rod Assembly Pawl Release
|Long title...need part. TRF lists as NA. Apparently when I dissembled the hand brake, I "lost" the rod and spring that actuates the pawl release (rachet). Anyone with a parts car or "parts" that might wnat to part with this item? Thanks.|
Of all the weird little tid bits I have, I think I have what you are lookin' for.
Not at home at the moment but will look when I get home tomorrow. Will look up the TRF part number and page. I know I have the push button piece with the attached long rod with a " hook" at the end and the spring ( I think I have the spring).
As usual, yours N/C.
I am only doing this because your car is a '71.
|What's up w/ the address Rick??|
Address is probably because he's traveling.
Rick, Thanks a million. The piece you describe is exactly what I need. I think that mine sort of shot across the shop floor last winter when I dissassembled the hand brake and rather than chase it, I figured I'd pick it up when I cleaned up the ares for the evening and must have just forgot about it. Probably was swept up and dumped with the evening's cleanup. In any event when I went looking for it recently, no rod, no spring. Got a new handle grip and powder coated all other parts of the handle etc, but no connector to actuate the pawl release on the rachet.
Had to buy the hand brake cables too even though mine are in excellent shape EXCEPT for the dust boots!! Not spared separately so I bought two new ones. 'bout finished with the brake work, if I can ever get the damn pistons out!! Still working on those.
Will look for it today when I get home.
Might need your address again (via e-mail) as my old PC is shut down.
Address IS because he is travelling.
It is weird though. Yestereday new hotel and did not go directly to BBS site. This morning (same hotel)it did, so you see me as normal log on. All this week it logged on normally at another hotel.
|Rick, you have mail.|
