in the midst of restoring a "75" sport, doing the steering cables now, how many times does the cable get wrapped aroung the steering pulley, and is it opposite of each other, thanks, love the site....

Do yourself a favor and change that cable & pully steering over to a new Teleflex NFB rotary system. It's worth the investment, not only in the safety factor but in the ease of steering.

Ron, the Cable and Pulley system are great and keep it Classic! The look great on a Classic `13. Regards-Jack Graner.

As I recall on my 1974 13', the threaded drum had about 5 troughs or channels. If I remember correctly, I used to have three of the channels filled. I think that equals two full wraps around.

And be sure to wrap it the right way
round so the steering doesn't work backwards.
