1965 E-Brake Tail End Assembly?

Unread post by GasDaddy140 » Mon Nov 06, 2017 10:47 am

Hey Corvairs!
I'm looking for a little help with a picture or diagram of how the E-Brake cable assembly lands at the end of the tunnel. This is where it secures and connects to the curved puller to pull the cable brake line bow coming from the rear drums. I have a collection of weird parts and as usual don't know how to use them!
Thanks for your help.

Thanks BBodies52!
I have those diagrams. What I don't see is the where the front cable assembly cable goes thru the frame grommet with the small hole to lead to the curved puller. Does the cable simply push thru?

The cable simply exits the tunnel thru the grommet. A split grommet is used generally. Remove grommet, put cable thru rear tunnel hole and then re-install grommet.
