    Those levers were discontinued by GM nearly 20 years ago. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I'm working with the folks at www.azkickin.com on a prototype that will provide new levers, brake cables, and the brackets to make them all work nicely together. Check out their ad at the top of this page. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Order one and take a picture of it for me. I stopped at a Caddy dealer years ago to see about getting some of that stuff. They told me "tough luck". /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Didn't we go through this before and the numbers that have been posted are incorrect? Either they are for the 79-85 calipers, or they were for the Seville setup, and they aren't interchangeable.

    I just don't feel like looking the old posts up again, I'm sick of the PITA eldo caliper swap.

    Hey Harry, if you'd like pictures of the brackets and springs I'd be glad to take some for you /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I ordered the 2 brackets and 2 of the springs 2 weeks ago. They arrived last week but I haven't had a chance to get underneath and figure out a way to connect it all yet. I figure I'll have to develop some kind of lever system to allow for more pull on the actuator than the e-brake pedal travel allows for; but this is all hearsay right now /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif.

    In about a week or so I should have some info from experience to offer /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Thomas.

    Alright smarta$$, since you know the part numbers are right, I'd like you to explain how you know this, since you have no idea what year or application he is dealing with.

    Oh, you wanted me to prove it eh? Well, since I can't prove it's the wrong number for his application (and there is no way you can prove they are correct) I can just point you to a post that I had *hoped* I wouldn't need to find, since as I said before, this swap is too painful to deal with.
    look at me! I'm sure I'm always correct!!!

    Yeah, any time. Post with the attitude you did, get some in return. Besides, both I and another corrected/updated your previous posts regarding these part #'s, and you didn't respond then. the other post

    I'm sure I've been guilty of not believing I'm wrong until it hits me in the face, so I guess I can't cop too much of an attitude.

    I'm sorry, but "says who?" rubs me the wrong way.

    yeh i understand /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif but really i don't like being told i'm wrong with out proof /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    but on another note TSM sells 76-78 eldo calipers new, complete with levers and springs, so somebody must be selling them? right?

    i dropped them a little note to see if they will come off with a source or a part # but i doubt they will.

    You'd think so, but I'd just as soon someone spent more time coming up with some other rotors or something, and using a later model disk brake rear setup.

    Yes it will be a hassle to start with, but I don't know anyone that thinks finding all the parts for the cadi swap easy, at least in any quantity.

    Well, I hope someone comes up with a solution soon. I'm a couple of months away from deciding between Caddy calipers, and a driveline e-brake for my Corp14ff project. I have the AZ-Kickin brackets and the rotors installed. Maybe somebody oughta do a poll on these two choices. I have to put in a new driveline which will be either a High Angle, or a local shop doing the same thing, so that may be the easiest. But, don't you have to fabricate some kind of mount anyway for that setup?
