14bSF and 14bFF use the same parking brake cables?
For mid-80's 3/4ton
yep, they use the same ones, the only thing to watch out for is that you get the 82(?) up style ebrake cables, (one cable down driver side frame rail, splits and pass side cable crosses over the pinion) not the older style
Haven't had the pleasure of dealing with the later setups. (I thought the change was in '83, but who knows/cares for this matter)
However, should be visually easy to tell even with rear axle out of vehicle..."old" style will have two equal length cables, "later" should have passenger side cable much longer so that it reaches to drivers side.
If looking for rear axles, etc., I'd suspect the cables themselves could be swapped out if necessary, but dang, those clips that go through the backing plate suck to remove.
well... the cables can be swapped, but you have to to change the backing plate too... they mount differently (early = bolt in, later = clip in) btw, the backing plates are also interchangable
I'll be going from an '85 14bSF to an '87 14bFF from a CUCV.
You mean the sf and ff backing plates are interchangeable?
yep, as long as its the same brake size (11.2" or 13")
Cool. Are the brake drums interchangeable too?
uhhh... i dunno
i wouldnt think so, because the FF version presses onto the hub, one would *think* its different than a SF... but this is just me thinking, not actually having knowledge
