I don't believe there is. But if you take the plastic cover off the side of the servo you can see how the cable is wound around a wheel in there with a cast block on the end much like a bike cable. IIRC it's spring loaded too so two people would make the job easier.

If I can't find one in a boneyard, A bike shop might be able to cut one for me if only I hadn't already tossed the IP end of it....How long should the cable be?

I don't recall. I do think they are different lengths I-6 to V-8 though.
Try eBay for one.

Will do. I'll pull mine apart and pull the cable out since its trash and measure it. Thanks.

If you have the vacuum servo, I recall when I took one apart the cable will unhook from a lever inside the servo using a clevis pin. Its a junkyard part only too.

Before the electronic servo, the vacuum servos had the BOO and a vacuum release valve at the brake pedal. When electronic servos came about, the vacuum valve is useless so Ford put the brake pressure switch in its place.

(Note: both of these trucks are 4.9L 5-speeds.)








Of course swapping your steering wheel (or getting another column w/tilt also ...see other projects here) will be necessary. I'd have to do more research to determine if the clockspring would need to be changed or if it's already cruise equipped.
