    The owner before me had S13 calipers on the rear of my S14 and didn't have the handbrake cables connected because the mechanisms are different.

    I've now put S14 mechanisms on the S13 calipers as they are almost identical calipers, (the piston has a slightly smaller diameter).

    Problem:
    The o/s handbrake cable is connected and working fine, however the n/s cable won't quite reach, I could pull it on with some force but it makes the brake rub and there's absolutely no adjustment left on the lever.

    Any ideas what could be wrong / why the cable is a little bit too short?? :confused:
