Parking Brake Assembly for 1960 F250

Does anyone know where I can find a parking brake assembly for my 1960 F250? I have scoured the interwebs in search of one but can't seem to find one anywhere, new or used. I have the old parking brake assembly still but all of the ratcheting mechanism is gone. So I can pull the handle but there is nothing to catch and keep the brake engaged. I figured it would be next to impossible to find the ratcheting mechanism so I just thought I'd go ahead and buy the whole assembly. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks much!

Should be the same one on the f350 and mayber bigger trucks as well. The big trucks and their parts get scrapped a lot, at least around here. Not too many people restore them. If Bill, aka Number Dummy could tell us what trucks have the same assembly, I would be happy to keep my eyes peeled. I think there's a guy in Austin who might be looking for a lot of the same parts too, unless he's already found them.

I think the bigger trucks used a brake on the tranny.

What is not there on your rachet assembly. Are the notces worn off? There is just a postage stamp size piece of 3/32 inch thick or so steel and a spring that makes it work. Shouldn't be that hard to made up a little piece and bend a spring to fit. When the cables get set up and someone pulls out on the handle, there is not any tension on the little steel piece to hold it in there and it can easily be lost. It relies on the pressure of the e-brake return springs located inside the back drums to keep the tension on it. if the cables or not free to retract then bad things happen, bad things!

Do you have a diagram of how it should fit together? The notches seem to be deep still but there is nothing inside of the tube to engage in the notches. That's where a square piece of steel and a spring engage? A diagram or close up pictures would be great.

Yes, the small plate catches in the notches. I will see if I can find a pic. I have the manuals but not really the skill to post without great effort.

A shop manual and a master parts catalog are worth there weight in gold.

Ya, I have 2 different manuals. One of them is a complete shop manual but it doesn't have the parking brake assembly in there I do need to find a master parts list, though.

Obviously this part is not for a ford truck but part number one looks very similar to what you need. Perhaps enough to give you the idea.

That little flap is shaped like an H. With the front leg of the H beveled where it engages the teeth on the shaft.

So after seeing what the part looked like I decided to go try and look one last time for shiggles. And what did I find? The ratcheting mechanism, at the very bottom of my toolbox! The PO must have just thrown it in there. Thanks guys! You saved me all sorts of headache and $.

I have the old parking brake assembly still but "all" of the ratcheting mechanism is gone.
"All" that causes the problemo, consists of two parts.

So I can pull the handle but there is nothing to catch and keep the brake engaged.
The two parts are his-tor-ee.
1957/60 F100/250 is the same. F350 and larger trucks are not the same.

Mechanism: The parking brake handle attaches to the lever that has notches in it.

When you pull the handle out, the lever pawl locks into a notch.

When you turn the handle to release the parking brake, the curly-que lever pawl spring causes the pawl to disengage.

The usual problemo: It's common for the spring to break, the pawl wears down to a nub. Replace both parts, problem solved.

1957/60 F100/250:

OM-2786 .. Parking Brake Lever Pawl / Obsolete

JST AUTOMOTIVE in Lebanon TN has 2 = 615-443-3086.

KLIMESH MOTOR SALES in Calmar IA has 3 = 563-562-3241.
----------------------------------------------------------
OM-2788 .. Parking Brake Lever Pawl Spring / Obsolete

JST AUTOMOTIVE has 3 // KLIMESH MOTOR SALES has 9

GREEN SALES CO. in Cincinnati OH has 76 = 800-543-4959.
----------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: On the end of the parking brake control outer shroud is a hole, the lever has a matching hole.

A knurled shouldered pin locks the lever in place. It may be missing if the lever has been removed from the shroud.

OM-2859 .. Parking Brake Lever Pin / Obsolete

JST AUTOMOTIVE has 11 / KLIMESH MOTOR SALES has 15
