where to get an e-brake cable

I have adjusted and adjusted and my e-brake just doesn't seem to want to work. I think the cable is all stretched out. It just barely starts to grab at the most extreme pull of the lever.

What's a good source for a new cable?

thanks, folks.

That is completely possible. Maybe I will go out today and bang on that little contraption a bit. They looked OK when I put on the shocks, but they were kind of...errr....crusty.

mummble...mumble..huh??

We are growing a pretty tall pile of stuff to do, Glenn. Someday maybe I will have two seconds to rub together and be able to pop over. I'll see what I can come up with myself, but will probably come running over there looking for some fortified knowledge on the subject before I screw something up beyond repair (is there such a thing?).

~thanks

Re: where to get an e-brake cable

The bueller thing is a movie ref.. sorry been out in the garage all day.
Compared to the engine swap we just did on hiedis truck your stuff is nothing...
Whn I get back from teh melt stop over and we can pop the drums and take a look-see. Not hard with the right tools, almost impossible without.

I use a hammer for everything. That's good enough isn't it?
