Default BMI delivery, Christmas in January

got a big ol' load of parts from BMI, most for my world renowned winches but some for the new Manco, I mainly wanted to post this to show the cables I got since I asked THIS question, here you can see very clearly, the brake cable is much thicker than the throttle cable

one of the cables I ordered to put on the Manco, the other I ordered for funzees because it was only $5 and I wanted to see what it was about,

now then, following up on THIS post, I was surprised by both cables!

the throttle cable ended up coming as an 'eyelet' which I can now deduce from the terrible BMI image but had no idea I didn't need to raise the question about the barrel conversion

the brake cable I ordered for the clevis is WAY too big too fit in the clevis

long story short, I'll use the throttle cable for the...........wait for it...........throttle and simply save the brake cable and THEN, I'll get back to building winches!

Your winches are pretty cool. What gearing do you use for those? How does that double line one work? One rope wrapped around the opposite direction?

thanks for checking it out, that winch has 2 spools, spooled the same, so 2 riders can come in at once, one rider can come is as the other line is getting walked to the start location or while the second line simply rests

No problem. Thanks for responding. I never knew of those things until I bought the cam for my mini bike engine. It is a winchboarding cam from NR Racing. Its been a while since I've looked those things up.
