I picked up some 90* 's off the front cable , (on the firewall) 79-89toys from White Valley Collision

got them all cleaned up ..

I went to incert the cable .. for a test fit .. and found they wouldnt work .. the inner wheel was plastic , as well as not the right fit for the cable ... I didnt think the plastic was strong enough either ..

so I lagthed some new wheels ..

and now cable fits perfect ..

braced and tacked into place ..

They seem to be good , although I do have about 1-2 mm of deflection .. I either need to brace them better , make some more supports .. or re-do the brackets in a thicker material ..
