    Default Handbreak cable. Which one does fit

    Hey guys.

    I have a rather urgent question:
    TO make the car road-legal, I have to change the handbreak cable on my 1972 Datsun 240Z, but im not sure, which part to go with.

    I could have one from nearby, which comes out of a 260 2+2 or go with something like this:

    Datsun Fairlady Z 240Z 260z 280z 2SEAT Hand Brake 2 Cables New | eBay

    My question is: Are they all the same in the 240s to the 280s or are there major differences. Can even the 2+2-versions be used, or are they way longer then the ones in the 2-seater?
    Maybe its just a detail changed, but it seems to me, that there are numerous different Part-No. This does not necessarilly mean, that the part is really different.......Thats why im asking you guys.

    Or does anybody have a source for my part, which doesnt ask 240 bucks for just one cable?

    Thanks guys, my adventure over here in germany with the Datsun just beginns......

    Best regards,

    Arizona Z car says it is 240 only, then 260-280, then 280zx.
    They show to have a cable for the 240, but you have to call for prices.

    I purchased this cable from ebay for my 71 240z. You will have to drill a slightly larger hole in the mounting brackets under the car. Very easy mod.
