Glenn/Donny, where did you guys get the brackets you used to mount the cables to (the one that has the cables pulling their respective ways)? Any info would be appreciated.

I made it. Box tubing and a couple of gusseted tabs welded to the ends.

The outer housings that route to the park brake are mount to a piece of 1" box tubing with a tab on each end. All of the load is contained within that bracket and there is no load at all on the mounts of either the Estopp or the bracket holding the cables.



Why do it this way? When the Estopp is engaged, it tries to pull the inner cable into the outer housing.....pulling the left and right park brake cables closer together. Because it floats, it self equalizes, ensuring that the pulling force is equal between both sides.


Where did you pick up the brass blocks? Such a great idea! Thanks for sharing it!

Never mind. I found them. They are made by Lokar.

Thanks, but I stole the concept from Cadillac. That is how they connect the cables on the CTS with the electric parking brake.

Completely ingenious. Now that I am reading it clearly I see where it floats and is pulling equally. Thats what I missed the first time. Love the idea.

Donny,
Thanks for sharing this hook up! I was planning to mount my E-Stopp in that same location but was struggling with the cable routing from each wheel. This arrangement makes the routing a cinch. I know how to make this system work now.
