I'm having trouble finding and fitting new parking brake cables to my '47 3100.
The original (?) cables and clevises have siezed, no more adjustment. NOS parts and new replacements seem to be long enough (cable), but about 3" too short (cable sheath or outer housing).
Has anyone else run into this, and if so, how did you get work around it?
thanks.

Thanks Pope. I'm in contact with them now. Still looking to see if they have something in stock that will work, but may end up ordering custom.

Good luck with YOUR stovebolt.

Thanks! I am going to end up getting cables from them as well. The ol 4x trucks are kind of neglected when it comes to aftermarket oe parts.

Bdammers, I just finished putting new parking brake cables in my 53 half ton, bought them from chevs of the 40s or clssic parts, they are in their catalog. Are you maybe not installing the threaded rod that screws to the cable end?Just a thought.Babe

Babe, I've tried NOS from Classic Chevy and replacements from Jim Carter, both had out casings that were too short to make the connection between the axle and the frame mounted bracket (almost taut with the axle supported, no give for axle movement while driving). The cable itself seems long enough.

I'm installing the right side the same as the left is assembled. Not sure why my truck is different.

Thanks for the input though, it is appreciated.
Bill

I also recommend Inlinetube. I first got parking cables for my '53 from Classic and they would not fit...cheap Chinese junk. I returned them and bought some from inline which were identical to the originals, more expensive but well worth it...they fit great.

Just got my new cables in from Inlinetube. They look great. Can't wait to get them onto the truck!

Brake set, up and running. Trucks been on the road for several days now (since Sunday). It's funny how the old sounds it makes and my reactions to how it drives come back so quickly.
