    I want to buy some new parking brake cable for the ebrake I'm setting up using 76-76 Eldo calipers.
    I had the parts guy pull some 85 blazer cable and they looked good on the side of the cable that attaches to the cliper, but on the other side there is a threaded rod - ?? I don't know what that is for. I want a cable that looks the same on both side, you know with a dimple or whatever.

    What should I ask the parts guy for?
    As i remember, my old 76 k10 had it like I want it, but I don't want to just go by memory.

    Probably in the top ten most asked questions here.... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I will dig through my shite soon and give you my saved posts but bottom line there is no 'part number' to give.

    Options:
    You will need to use stock cables, locating brackets for the housing, and cable pinch bolts

    Have cables custom made - I think Potent Rodent has these.

    You are on some of these... Maybe I didn't read your question right....?

    I looked at my pile of parts - 4 pieces will be necessary after the cable that goes to the peddle
    1 bracket
    1 adjustable hook
    2 cables - 1 with threaded rod on one end, the other has a ball at one end and a cylinder at the other.

    Maybe look at an LMC catalog for a parts explosion??

    Hope this helps.

    Your older truck won't be compatible as is, with any GM rear disk setup cables, only because the disk, and '85-up trucks with drum rears are the same cable routing. (pedal end of cable stays on drivers side until it gets close to rear axle. Passenger side cable loops up over the axle, and meets the drivers side cable where the pedal cable ends)
