Post W111: handbrake missing


Just noticed that my hand brake is entirely missing from the car! Never driven it so that explains why I didn't noticed it before. I bought it as a project car.

Anyone who has a schematic how to install one? I have to hunt down the brake handle and all the parts that belong to it. Does it sit on the right side of the steering wheel on a RHD car? I can see just an eyelead but that is all what is left of the mechanism...

Please check the M-100 forum, The International M-100 Group, as there are some Australians there who may be close and would know the answers to your questions.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
