Looks like I didn't check these over enough before I bought them at the swapmeet. Any solutions beside the $25 a piece Campy adjusters?

The threading is most likely the same as other Dia Compes or other brands even. I'd cannibalize off another lesser set

I got modern Campy ones at the LBS for >$10. Still pricey, but not too bad. The Shimano ones were even cheaper, and will probably work.

Looks like those calipers take a standard thread barrel adjuster, so your best bet is to take one off another Dia Compe caliper like another GX, G or similar.

Ordered a set of threadless sliders and a chain from Loosescrews. Will get barrels soon.

It looks like the adjusters are on them? The barrel is just above the chrome QR levers? Unless the lever is there and the barrel is missing out of the top?,,,,BD

Lever is there, that's what threw me off. They take the sliders with threaded barrels at the top.

I have an extra set of Dia Compe levers ,also front caliper.If the part you need is on mine you can have it,model 400, says GX on caliper adjuster lever... Let me know

I am at work, so can't see any pictures, but if you are talking the part that holds the threaded adjuster and slides into the cam, I may have one at home. I'll check then.
