Emergency Brake & Speedometer cables routing
« on: September 03, 2019, 12:25:28 AM »
On a 3A, what is the correct routing and clip attaching points for the emergency brake and speedometer cables?  Any tips from experience or precautions concerning these also appreciated  Thank you

I found several posts that will help on the Hand Brake Cable.  They show some of the attachment points for the cable.  The upper (firewall) attachment and lower (crossmember) keeps the cable housing secure which allows you to pull the inner cable when applying the brake.  The center clip just keeps the housing out of the way and up against the bellhousing.

This one has a unique attachment at the bellhousing:

This is the one I like best as it shows all the clips (this is for a 2A and match the 3B clips so I'd assume there is no change for the 3A):

To me, the center clip resembles a large "brake line" clip but as proven, anything that will hold it to the bellhousing will work.

For the Speedometer Cable, I found an image on this post that shows a clip holding the cable against the firewall just above the starter:

Another image of Wade's '55 under the Oil Bath Breather showing the same clip on the firewall:

I'm not sure about further down, but I just laid it up in the C channel.
