A view from under the truck looking up at the intermediate lever, located under the body where the driver's seat is located. After installing the new brackets in the rear, a great deal of slack was introduced into the cable. By loosening the adjustment nut on the front side of the lever and tightening the one on the back side, this slack is taken up. However, I ran out of adjustment just before the cable was at the desired tension. I had to remove the original adjustment nut on the back side of the lever (which is approximately 11/16" thick) and replace it with a standard thickness hex nut of the same thread size. Unfortunately, I don't remember the thread size but it is metric.
