If anyone wanted a plastic/nylon one, it it were left unthreaded, it'd just self thread as it was being turned on. Eureka!

Just had a look at my Mk1 handbrakes and all have the push on nylon buttons, the shaft they fit on is 3/16" diameter. If you drill out the rivet the whole assembly can be removed and the button replaced with the shaft in a vice.

Looks like BMC strikes again :lol:
I've now dug out another twin cable lever which belongs on my November 64 car and it is riveted but the first one I looked at is a pin and split pin .
I think the first one is off a 1960 car so perhaps the very early ones were not riveted ?
I've also got a twin lever on my early mk3 but it's raining and the car is under many tarpolins shrunk wrap with cling film but bet that's riveted to ??
I cannot twiddle the 64 one off as it's tight as a drum but the 60 was only ever thumb tight .
What year are those levers off bob ?
The pic attached shows the 60 with rubber grip ,the 64 has no grip

Thanks for the many replies. Your attached pictures give me a much better understanding of the hand brake lever assembly.

I have the same lever assembly that 1071bob posted.

I will attempt to pull off the knob and see if I can make a new one from nylon.

The lever needs to be blasted and either painted or powder coated.

I did not realize that BMC had so many variants of the hand brake lever.

Many thanks for the continued help to restore my 1965 Cooper S.

Jim

The release button 21A907 is available in Aust.

https://minikingdomonline.com.au/produc ... -button-2/

I have bought several recently. They are actually white in colour. They appear orange in the website.

Minikingdomonline may not send overseas. I can send you more details re size etc if you want me to relay the part to UK.

It's possible the introduction of a chrome version of the handle which had a metal knob led to the threaded nylon variant? Have tried to remove the metal knob on my chrome example but it's not coming off easily so can't say for sure if it is threaded, but it would be the obvious way to attach it so assume it is. After 25 odd years can't remember for sure which car it came off but think it was from an ADO16 'Princess'. I still have the original October 1962 handle fitted at Cowley and it has a nylon 'push-on' button if that helps the information pool. Picture of both attached. Both are riveted.

The book says :

2A5850 Lever assembly (Knob 21G5043)
21A904 Lever assembly (Knob 21A907)

21A904 fitted from A-A2S7 151051 RHD & 149632 LHD, and M-A2S4 108112, plus 107836 to 108000.

21A904 is also listed as fitment in the Cooper book.
