1931 Devaux brakes

Hello All,
Does anyone know where I could purchase the steel brake cables for the 1931 Devaux? I understand that the 31 614 Durant had the same brakes. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: 1931 Devaux brakes

Both cars did use Midland "Steeldraulic" brakes with identical lining areas.
Maybe Frank in PA can give you some help. By the way, how about joining our great club?
Best Regards, Gary

I have a frame that's been sitting in the weather a long time. Not sure what it's got left on it, When some snow melts someday, I'll take a look. I know it has the brake bar attached to the frame. Need any other frame type stuff?

I found stainless steel cable to replace the old. I have a lead on a company that may be able to secure the old fittings on the new cable for me here in Jacksonville.
P.S. I sent a check for membership into the club. I haven't heard if it was received yet.

Re: 1931 Devaux brakes

If you find a company that can do that, would you please post it on the web. I have several old broken cables that might be able to be repaired.
