    need k5 ebrake cables - lost them when I went to rear disk brakes (don't ask), and I need them cuz I have a manual tranny.

    Jeff,

    I recently got rear discs on my 76 K5. The e-brake cables were 5" too short after the conversion. I have a 4" suspension lift and 35's. If you want my stock cables, you can have 'em. But wouldn't they be too short for yours too?

    that's a good question... I will have to measure them off my other k5, and then see if they fit. if they do then I'll definitely take you up on that offer!
