    I just Swaped out my Junky 10 Bolt out of my 86 Blazer and put the much bigger 14BFF in it. The 14 Bolt came out of a 76 Pick up. Well Evey thing went fine. the only problem I have run into is that My E Brake Cables Are different. On the 14 Bolt there are cables comming out of both drums and look like they are ment to hook to some cables on each side of the Frame. Well my blazer, and with the old 10 Bolt there are 2 cables that come from the drivers side and go into the drums. The cable just crossed over the axle. So can some one help me or give me some Ideas. Thanks

    Get the newer backing plates for the 14FF is one way. 14SF plates are the same as 3/4-ton 14FF plates.

    Somebody on here had a sneaky workaround... not sure who it was though. Hopefully they will chime in. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Im doin the same swap right now. what i did is i removed the bolt in cables from the 14bff.I then cut the cables and removed the metel piece that bolts on to the backing plate.so now i have the piece that will bolt on to the backing plate, i drill out the small hole the cable goes through to 1/2 in. so now i slide the original 10 bolt cable through this piece and then bolt it to the 14bff back plate. And there you go,repeat the same thing for the other side and then just hook the cables up to the internal arm and you are done. ( except for some adjustment to the cable). I just ran into the same problem today and figured ths out real fast but it worked great. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif
