Re: SOA almost complete but a few last questions
Humm... an Ebrake soulition...?
Rear Ebrake Frame Mount:
1. Cut off the Ebrake mounting assembly from the frame.
3. Move it BACK (and down if you want).
4. Reweld it back on the frame.
Now if you don't want to do this you can also cut and splice the cables using good ol' cable clamps on the cable to lenghten the OEM cable.
Now for a hint to help keep the Ebrake Working while living 280 miles west of the WInter Salt Captial of the Rust belt... Fargo Moorehead (Or was that Margo Forehead [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]}
1. Remove the Ebrake Pedal assembly
2. Remove the Ebrake line.
3. Cut the flexible sheething at the floor under the thb
4. Buy some 3/8" hard brake line.
5. From the brake line to repalce the flexible sheeth from 1" inside the tub, back to the newly relocated.Ebrake cable mount
6. Weld the flexible end of the OEM sheeth to the brake line. This flexible porition is never exposed to the weather.
7. On the other end weld a nut to limit exposure of the tube to the elements.
8. Drill into the hard line about where it would be accessible when mounted.
9. Get a Zerk Fitting, and find a nut that fits it's thread.
10. Grind the nut to the conture of the hard line.
11. Weld the nut over the hole.
12. Using thread lock, inset the zerk fitting into the nut.
13. Cover the whoe assembly with a couple of coats of hammerite.
14. Use the compression fitting on the rear of the tube to mount to the OEM sheeth Frame mount. It'll fit like a glove.
15. Mount the new line.
16. Run the cable.
17. Fill'er up with grease!
Now the new sheeth's done, better'n new. Darn, wasn't that simple and cheap!
