Campy Brake Parts

I need to post 10 times before I can download a photo, so here I go!

I am looking for the felt piece that goes on to the cable tension part. Where can I find parts?

Felt piece? Do you know which model of Campagnolo brake do you have? Random pieces bits & bobs can be hard to source.

Loose Screws (https://www.loosescrews.com/) and Boulder Bicycles (Boulder Bicycle) are good resources, and, of course, ebay. And there's a lot of kind forum members here with deep parts bins here who may be willing to help out, sell, or trade to fill your needs.

If you're talking about the rubber o-ring as shown above, adequate replacements can be found at most hardware stores.

I've seen photos of Campy NR calipers that were shipped from the factory with a non-metallic (maybe felt or cardboard) ring on the underside of the cable adjuster screw. As most of us know those screws, with the adjuster nut, just slide into the caliper arm and can fall out easily when not installed on a bike. Somewhere on earth is a ditch just filled with those screws. The non-metallic ring kept the pieces together until installed and cabled up. The rings were to be removed during installation. Never intended to last out in the weather.

Is that what the OP is looking for? Not needed on a rider. Maybe nice to have on a display caliper.

'

An easy solution, as many know is to remove the adjuster ring and then insert the cable stop on the caliper and then install the adjust ring. No "loose screws."

Dyed, embossed, die-cut chipboard. Was a packaging material to keep the otherwise loose adjuster in place.
There might be units on the loose, probably offered for silly money.

Uhmmmm...... I'm quite sure Campagnolo meant for cyclists to throw those away after installing their brake calipers on bikes.....
As noted, its just part of the packaging for the component to keep the adjusters from falling off and bouncing around in their boxes.

Hint: A good way to get to 10 posts would be to write back to acknowledge any one of the multiple forum members who have offered suggestions and advice in the multiple threads you have started about the same bike. Don't do it on my account, though. It appears you have started five threads about your newly acquired bike, asked for feedback and valuation, but have not responded to anybody who has tried to be helpful. What gives?

We have two ears to hear with and only one mouth to speak with - but ten fingers with which to fondle our keyboards!

Yes, of course. BUT I did acquire an '82 Guerciotti that had those still on the brakes and even had the similar paper tab on the top bolt of the rear derailleur! I was somewhat surprised. I confess that I did remove the tags.
