Hi David I can confirm that the chrome type splitter box was available about 1933 as a while ago I bought a pair of Bowden carburettors from an Excelsior mechanical marvel these had two pairs of cables and two splitter boxes, one pair to the twistgrip and one pair to the choke lever. What you have be carefull of is to make sure that the splitter box has enough free length inside to allow your carburettor to open fully, the other problem to consider is that the cable movement required to open the carb fully may not be the same as is required by the pump, so an adjustable arm might be needed on the pump or a tension spring between the cable and the pump if the pump needs to be fully open at 3/4 throttle, best of luck, Alan Noakes.
