    hi all

    I've replaced the old 1/2 tons (10bolts front/rear) on my 1986 K15 with 3/4 ton (14bff/10bolt)

    but how can I hook the E-brake cable ?
    is there any way to modify the stock one ?
    or should I pull a complete setup from a 14bff occupied vehicle ?

    thanks

    does the e brake cable press in from the rear or does it bolt on to the 14 bolt

    I'm interested as well. I have my 14 bolt installed but never hooked up the e-brake.

    When I did mine it had the same hookup as the 12 bolt did.

    does it bolt on or snap in to place? early 14 bolts bolted on later ones snapped in to place if yours snaps in to place reuse the 10 bolt ones if it bolts on i could get you custom ones made
