    http://community.webshots.com/storage/1/v1/2/64/65/30526465ppVTbQpwRB_th.jpgmy original cable has no chance in fitting.... or being retained...
    So I came up with a way to retain the cable without totally butchering everything. I removed 1/2 of the cable braket from the cable on the donor truck, and will use this for support of the cable. You can bolt this in place on your new 14 bolt, but its not totally necessary. With a dremel tool I then removed the retaining cage on the 10 bolts cable. as seen in this picture...http://community.webshots.com/storage/1/v1/2/70/71/30527071CfDLBIUYoH_ph.jpg

    This worked well, the cable is still adjustable like it should be and if you ever have to replace the cable you still can. The only thing you have to do is remove the spring steel cage. I put a small tack weld on the cable housing to the piece of pipe just to hold it in place, but the tension of the cable spring will hold it against the pipe.

    I can't see them either.[​IMG] Just to let you know that a 14ff out of an 80's 1 ton the e brake will work since the cable crosses over so both connect on the drivers side.

    See <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Waynes-Toy>Project Mighty Mouse</a> here.
