Thanks for your crimping suggestions.

I guess my cable conduit setup is somewhat different than yours. I’ve removed the two 5/16 bolts on the frame side of the conduit, but there is some sort of attachment inside the frame that still holds it on the car. Because it is a box frame, I can’t easily see what is going on inside of it. It will take major disassembly –which I am trying to avoid – to get a look. Do you have a box frame on your ’31?

I also looked hard for brake shoe return springs two years ago, but couldn’t find them. I ended up having them made locally.
