    Do a quick search. This is currently being discussed in several threads, which is probably why no one has responded to yours.

    I did a search but all I found was threads on disk brake e-brakes

    I need to get the e-brake working on a stock 14BFF with drums under an 88 K5

    I have the same issue right now. I know that there are 2 ways the lines were run on the 14ff depending on year truck. See what you have and that will help a little.

    its fairly straight forward to do. you need the cable that runs from your pedal to about half way don your frame for an 88 k5. Then you need 14FF cables that will mate up to the bracket there. IIRC there are 2 or 3 different versions of the 14FF cables. One type bolts to the backing plates and the pass side cable is too short to cross over to the drivers side like your k5 originally had with its 10 bolt. The other type of 14FF cable has that annoying little clip type retainer where it goes through the backing plate and the pass side cable is longer to cross over to your stock e-brake connector on the drivers side. The 10 bolt cable may fit in this app but I don't remember.

    Hope this helps
