Still need a front hand brake cable for a van. Anyone used the Indian ones on ebay?

I tried the indian supplier on e-bay, the 2 week delivery was revised to 6 weeks, the tracking number was a false one and after 12 weeks I asked for a refund via e-bay. Kept telling me it was stuck in indian customs and to wait a bit longer.

No surprise about the supplier on ebay. I asked several questions but did not get a reply!

Derek do you definitely have a longer van one? Reason I ask is that I got one off you last year but you sent the shorter pick up one by mistake!!! I just never got round to returning it!! Although I didn't realise until after I removed my seized one - with it off the van I was able to unseize it, refit it and get another year out of it! But its too stretched now I think!

Can you measure the pick up one`s length.

Inner & outer & free play.

Thanks,

Derek.

Outer - 200cm
Inner - 180cm (rubber coated bit only - not end bits)
Freeplay - 3.75cm

If I remember it was a good 20cm too short.
