Subject: [CR]Campy question: details of changes to Record brakes

I have a few questions about the timing of changes to Campy Record (and Super Record) brake sets around the time of the CPSC changes. Any information that the group can provide will be appreciated.

1) I have calliper arms that are marked "brev. int." and others that are marked "brev. inter." Does anyone know which is older and when the change took place?

2) I have QR cams (the part the QR lever attaches to) that are marked "brev. camp." around the perimeter and others that have "campagnolo" spelled out around the perimeter and "brev." horizontally across the middle. The second version is the older one. Does anyone know if this change coincided with the flat-to-domed QR lever change, or was it made at another time?

3) At what point in time did Campy start to include lined cable housings in their brakesets? I remember buying an SR brakeset in 1983 that had linings, but I'm wondering how much futher back this goes.

Thanks for considering these weighty questions.
