    I maybe wrong but I think the 73 Ski Doo TNT free airs had them. 74 they went back to cable.

    Vics, it should not be on a '73 EXT.  Maybe a Formula II.

    jschaffer  you are correct that the formula II did have them but , when the EXT came out with the manual crappy brake . Cat recommended in their race program to upgrade them to the Kelsey Hayes set up also. It is rare to find a 73 EXT with the manual brakes , if so it probably was not raced.

    Vic,
    All 5 of my 73's have the manual brake on them, same goes for my Formula II. I know that they all have been raced.

    derwood   all 6 of my previous owned Formula II's  were equipped with the Kelsey Hayes brakes. Even the parts manual show them as being on those sleds. I would be interested to  see how that system would work with the mounting hardware  down on the drivers and exposed to the snow.

    Iím almost certain that it was standard equipment on the 1975 John Deere 340/S. it was an available as an update (or option) on the 1976 Liquidator.
