    hey guys. i have a 67k20 with a hand brake, ebrake lever. i recently converted my 14ff to disc brakes with eldorado calipers. i want to convert the cables so i have one cable all the way to the rear of the truck. at the rear of the truck i want to split them into one long and one short cable (long one goes to opposite side of truck). i know newer trucks have this style of e-brakes. what trucks can i get these brake cables from? right now it is impossible to retain my stock e-brake cause they hit my transfer case and exhaust and the single cable going back would be way more efficient in transfering the pull of the cable to the calipers.

    if anyone has pics they could post that'd be great. thanks

    Steven k

    I grabbed that e-brake cable setup from a '89 sub that I parted out.

    I have to install them on the rear calipers, but its waiting for me. The cables looked nice when I mocked them up.

    That setup started in 1984.
    I had some for sale a while back...here's the pics and html from the auction.
    You'll need the equalizer, front and 2 rear cables. The guides help, buy aren't nessesary. GM still carries all of this. If you order from LMC, everything except the cables is GM.
