Brake System Modifications  (Continued)

The Emergency Brake (E-Brake) Cables

When I had the new leaf spring paks installed, they were thicker than the original paks, and this resulted in the emergency brake cables contacting the top leafs when the brakes were engaged. A BIG thanks to fellow TTORA member Mark Griese (AZ Chapter) for coming up with this great solution. It is a bracket made from 1" x 1" x 1/8" angle iron and requires some hardware to attach it. Basically, it attaches to the existing brackets and relocates the attachment point of the cables higher than the stock location. See the photos below for descriptions. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
