I assume you are talking about an old hub. The answer is yes. None of the old 3 speeds that I have seen have had brazed on stops. They do have a fulcrum clip & a pulley mounted to the frame

Most of the vintage units used clamp on stops for cable housing, or clamps with guide wheels for bare cable. The newer hubs are often packaged with a full length housed cable that ends with an axle bracket allowing the termination connection to the indicator chain.

We used to all the time. You could buy the bolt on stops. I imagine you must still be able to.

The clamp on stops are available at Harris Cyclery.

You could probably sell those campy stops on e-bay and buy a whole new bike with the proceeds!
