High quality

December 21, 2015
These cables are very nice and work excellent. When cutting the outside jacket I find using a cut off disk works best and quickly insert the jacket into its sleeve before it cools. Then use a small file on the inside to smooth it out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These cables are a universal kit and in the front utilizes our floor mount E brake or you can buy the extension kit for an under dash E brake. At the caliper it has hardware for thru a backing plate or the stationary part of an E brake caliper. It does not have the spring for the return on the caliper and this would need to be sourced at a local parts store.

E brake cable kit number 49180FU fits nearly every domestic application of GM, Ford, and Mopar and unless you have a 1 or 2 ton truck they should work fine. Depending on your E-brake mechanism is under the dash you will likely need a connector cable kit number 4918001U to complete the installation. The cables come with detailed instruction for the installation.

Part # 49180FU This cable kit will work with most drum brake applications and GM E-brake calipers. The cable end where it attaches to the E brake lever in the backing plate or on the caliper is made with the ball on the end to drop down into the two fingered actuating arm. If you have the arm with the hole in it for attaching the cable then we would suggest kit number 49181FU.

These cables will work with most drum brake applications where the arm for the E brake uses a cable with a ball on the end. This style of arm looks like a double fender which allows the cable to drop down in between and the ball on the cable pulls on the engagement arm when setting the E brake. If you have an engagement arm for the E brake that has a hole then you will also need the Explorer clevis number 49181FC. Where the cable goes thru the backing plate instead of a spring loaded clip this set has a nut and washer on the inside for retaining the cable assembly

Yes they should fit no problem. Use them with Lokar's parking brake handle for a simple, strong, safe parking brake.

I'm sorry to say that I don't know if this cable kit would fit a stock 51 Mercury Dana 44 rear end. I would recommend trying to source a OEM replacement cable for that application.
