I have a new departure triple speed on my 46 Schwinn. I believe they came out around 1950 as an add on kit for the new departure single speed hubs. To set up the adjustment it has to be in second gear and the cable is adjusted fully tight until it slips. Then adjusted fully loose till it slips then set in the middle of those two points.
