In line and not loose. Take the slack out of it via the two M10 nuts behind it. Don't be tempted to tighten the threaded cable ends (if that's what you have)

It's not exactly like that the 1I have has 1 bar with 2 bolts attached to it that hold 2 separate bars holding the cables

Difficult to picture Mick, to be honest. Have you got a pic? I may be able to point you in the right direction of how to tighten them up. Either way they shouldn't be slack.

TG - I'll try & rephrase Mick's description - Think a "standard" setup for a single axle, but instead of having 2 cables head off to the L & R drums, each side goes to another "second" splitter, one on each side. The LH plate then takes the cables to F & R axle, ditto right.

The Photo up there s a single plate with all 4 cables fitted to it.


Did that make more sense?
