The previous owner sliced the lead and intermediate cables and clamped them. The clamps keep popping off. I'm replacing the front cable with one from a yard. While out there I found a slick set up on the fullsize trucks with 14FF's where the central cable adjuster then went to an intermediate cable to the frame rail in front of each side of the axle. From there, a frame bracket attached to a short cable to the drum. Q: What the heck are you guys using on similar setup that works. Yeah, forget the pinion brake -I'm still running a 208.
