When i had a Sex Too it had the stud but not the bell crank.

the stud was actually canti bos sized and by pratting around with an old altus cantilever i made a reasonable arm that worked.

Not sure if i still have the pics though

If you don't have any luck I butchered a red Avid Tri Align with equally butchered black Onza Chill Pill and made my own. I subsequently tracked down a genuine one.
