Wrapping up the Brake job, finally, after ordering the wrong parking brake cables, returning…then backordered, here’s the solution. Real original cables aren’t available, so I modified the new version. The backing plates don’t have an attachment point like Chevrolet. The cables have 2 brackets that bolt to the backing plate and secure the cable end. I had to remove the spring clip and grind the cable housing. One of the two brackets had to be removed from the old cable, and slotted to be used on the new cable.
Here’s the pictures.
