I ordered a couple parking brake cables a while back for my ‘53 framed CDN 1/2 ton. I double checked, and I did order the proper number, but the cable is too big to slip into the frame clamp.

Has anyone else experienced this problem when ordering new parking cables for the AD trucks?

Fox,

I had the exact same problem when trying to replace the park brake cables on my 1953 3100 (US version). The ferrule on the end of the cable simply was too large to fit into the bracket. So I did some very judicious filing with a rat tail file, checking often to make sure that I didn't over file the bracket. Once it was close, a drop of oil helped ease the cable end into the bracket. When I tightened the bolt on the bracket if worked as it should.

I had the same issue when I bought my ‘52 3100. The cables ends were just were way too big. I ordered new cables from LMC truck and they fit perfectly.

Look at the thread I posted back in in the spring. It has lots of good information.

Thanks fellas.

Well, fer mack sake. I guess I gotta go receipt diving to send them back. I tried reaming one of the mounts out and broke it. Luckily, I have a parts truck.
