It is the "first response" system for the front seatbelts.  They have
the usual inertia locks, but the pro-con-ten cables go to the seat belt
spools and lock them instantly if the tranny is pushed backwards an inch
(?) or so.

Argh, I have no pix from when my tranny was out, but I seem to recall a
big rounded cable holder thing that was integral with the tranny casing,
and a steel plate or something that bolts on after the cable is in place
and stops it from falling out.

I doubt if you can kludge this.  If you can't, you might as well remove
the big steel things bolted to the underside of the body that route the
cables to save weight.

You will have the safetly level of the pre-PCT seat belts.

I don't think those cables do anything else, at least, they didn't seem
to on the 90Q I dismantled.  It sounds fromt he literature like they
should also yank the steering column forward, but there was no interface
like that.  The bigger cars might be different.

>>>About the Procon 10 - can I retain this?  Level of difficulty?
