Anyone got a picture or diagram showing the bracket that mounts the external parking brake band to a spicer 5 speed? Got a 59 chevy 2 1/2 ton that doesnt have one and trying to put one on. Any pictures in general would be helpful too.

What parts do you have?

Is the drum and output flange still on the back of the transmission?

Do you have the hand brake lever and it's linkage?

Post a picture of what you have...

Since the truck was a firetruck, it had a parking brake behind the pump but that is long gone, so I am left with the lever and a super long rod. There are 3 mounting studs left on the drivers side of the trans where a normal brake would have gone. I got a band assembly from someone off a clark transmission i believe since its 9 1/2x2 1/2 instead of 9 1/2x3" but dont have the drum or attaching bracket yet.

Ill get some pictures this afternoon.

That location is a good one for mounting a Brownie trans. if you wish an OD drive gear. Brownies come with park brakes.

If i had the original driveshafts, i would love to add a brownie but unfortunately its cut to fit without one. Maybe some day. Basically everything that touched a piece of fire equipment was cut off with a plasma cutter.

It is always best to start out an additional piece of driveline equipment with correct, known, new driveshafts.

The guy I bought the truck from took the driveshafts out of a schoolbus and had them cut to the correct length so they are relatively new.

Looks like you have everything for the passenger side of the trans, but your missing the Bar, Pin and Spring for the drivers side.

See if these pictures help...
