Simplex Super LJ - max cog?

I've owned a couple of versions of the Super LJ rear derailleur over the years, but always ran them with a close range freewheel. I'm wondering what the max cog is that can be run with an SLJ. Internet sources are inconclusive - one reputable source says 26t, another says 32t. So I'm looking for first hand experience - what's the largest cog you've run with an SLJ?

You should start here, look at the posts by verktyg. There's numerous models of the Super LJ, and it all depends on which one you're using.
