Just fitting the Woza handbrake cable for the Wilwoods and noticed how close one cable passes to a little hook on the clamp used to secure the fuel and brake line along the transmission tunnel. Is the standard cable supposed to pass through the hook?

To answer my own question... I've just found this photo I took years ago when I first stripped it down.

A lesson there to anyone doing a rebuild - photograph and document the disassembly, you never know how long it might be before it's screwed back together.

I was wondering the same... and despite taking many pictures during strip down, I didn't take many of the underside :-S.  Thanks!

On the topic of handbrake cables - anyone else used the Thailand ebay types?  I got one, only to find it falls right through the holes in the mounting brackets (both ends).  Got a 50% refund from the seller and welded a washer onto them to stop them pulling through. 

Anyway here's the reason in case anyone else ends up having this issue:

Mine was just the opposite. I had to grind the mount out to the larger 260Z dia.
