      yeah seems so. i was convinced something was up with the guide tube pairings w cables but that theory was squashed. GAP has always done me right and always had good parts…like i said i have rebuilt...

      sooooooo you guys are gonna laugh but i figured out what was wrong. i honestly could not see how a few mm difference in cable would somehow not allow my parking brake to work. you would think with...

      sorry that might have been a bit harsh and its obviously not as cut and dry as we would all like with these cables….there are different designed guide tubes and different part numbers for drum...

      i did not see anything in the search about this specifically. and while not rocket science, the magic of ETKA can still be confusing as crap and mix things up. ETKA lists the new numbers as...
