    Alright... reading all these other posts have confused the heck out of me. I understand the 10 bolt has a push in style and the 14 has a bolt in style. I also understand you can't use the push in style unless you modify it or use a SF backing plate. But my question is. Will the cables that came with the 14 FF bolt up to the truck? So in other words can I just forget about the 10 bolt all together and use what is on the truck (89) and 14 FF? My 14 has all cables and everything and it would be really nice if my 14's ebrake cables would fit into the truck where the 10 bolts did. Is there an adapter or new cable you can buy that will except it? My ebrake is broke on the 10 bolt so I'd like to avoid having to replace it as well as buying new backing plates.

    Well I'm going to start my 14FF conversion today. I'll let ya know if the cables will work. My 14 FF also has the e-brake cables still in it.

    When I did my 14B FF conversion, the E-brake cables on the 14B bolted right up.

    I believe there are 2 styles of E-brake cables on the 14B FF -- one will work, and the other will not.
    The easiest way to tell is to look under your truck (with the 10 bolt) and see if both e-brake cables come together on the drivers side in a bracket. Then look at the 14B and see if they are the same.

    The two styles I have seen are:
    1) each cable goes up the respective side of the truck
    2) the passenger's side cable comes across the differential and connects to the drivers side cable, and then only one cable goes up to the E-brake pedal.

    Just make sure the 14B has the same style as your 10 bolt.

    Thomas.
