Classic Auto Air Cable Integrators

Hey all,

I'm in the ancient CAA versus VA battle, but my research has led me to one conclusion. I'd highly prefer the self-serviceable equipment of CAA, but using a factory controls is mandatory. I asked CAA how their cable integrators worked and, frankly, received, a pretty useless response. Does anyone have any experience with them? I've found nothing but praise for the system VA uses to use factory controls. I'm aware neither the controls won't match the original labeling, but that isn't a big issue. I just want to know if they work well and reliably.

Re: Classic Auto Air Cable Integrators

I just installed the VA conversion levers. Pretty slick set-up. I am not ready to test the system yet but I was happy with the install.

Yeah, I haven't found anything negative about how VA got the factory controls to work. The way CAA calls theirs "cable integrators" kind of has me worried.

The install went pretty smooth. I would recommend VA.

Re: Classic Auto Air Cable Integrators

Looking at the CAA installation instructions makes it clear the cable integrators are simple slide potentiometers, same system as used by Vintage Air.
