bcon said:As far as I know, the only tcase ebrake for a split case, which I assume you are talking about is out of an *J-47. I am not saying that they are the only ones, just the only ones I have seen. I posted this pic earlier on a different thread, but I will try to post a better one with a real camera tomorrow. If you cannot find the cable let me know. Thanks
I have one actually that I purchased from MAF, works great. Trying to figure out a light or buzzer so if you take off with the brake on it will sound.cruiser_guy said:Rob, are you interested in getting the E-brake setup for the split case? I think I saw some in Honduras last time.
Poser said:September/October 2005 trails, article by Chris Hatfield, " A Pig Gets Lower Gear Grunt ", he states that a company alled California Push-Pull, Inc., 510.352.4061, will make you a parking brake cable for your truck.
" I sent them a stock FJ55 brake cable, and they custom made a new cable that was seven inches longer. It then took only minor grinding of the firewall bracket to mount the new cable due to a slightly larger fitting at the head end. Problem solved."
When I installed a toybox with a 465 and an Orion in a 1969 40 last year, I purchased a longer parking brake cable from BTB. It seems to be identical to what Chris was talking about above. It has worked great.
That is good info. Would you mind posting a price and contact info for the company. The modded-cable length question does come up from time to time, so it would be a good reference to have.Bumping up a really old one.
I recently had the folks at CA Push Pull make up an ebrake cable for my splitcase-mounted drum. It sits behind a Toybox and an H55 so I had them make me one that's 48" overall length.
Great folks to deal with. I sent them the stock cable and they turned around a new one within 1 day.
