One of them is 2A601 just under the lever 2A638/7. The other I do not see on this diagram. It would be the one being replaced with the chicken wire in my photo in the last post. Is there a diagram that shows the rear e-brake cable and how its connected through the backing plate 2211/12?

Here is a better indication of the second part in the red box. Of course, I would need the rear cables as well.

I've taken off one drum so far. It doesn't have the small bail wire over the end. That's not to say it never did, but doesn't now.



The upper part 2A601 is part number

Here's a picture of this same side again, from a different perspective.



There is a threaded stud in the top center that acts as a pivot point. It's hard to tell in your picture, but is that stud intact?

I am having a bit of a time with the drivers side hub/drum coming off. Got one of the big 2 3/8" nuts off and the washer and the inner nut moves freely to a point and then catches on a thread or burr. I'm heading to get a "Dana Rounded Spindle Nut Socket" in a bit. Once I get that side off I'll take a couple more pictures.

Yours doesn't have that bail wire on the end of the cable, but seems you need something to keep the cable end from coming loose. I assume your e-brakes have been working fine?

Here they are calling 2A601 a parking brake strut spring

And yes, the stud on mine is intact. The so called strut spring is shot though - no spring left

Got drivers side off now as well.

It won't fall off. Just to get it to come off on purpose I have to compress the spring sufficiently by hand and then rotate the loose cable outward until it clears the channel in the lever.

The lower end of the lever where it bends 90 is sandwiched between the e-brake cable spring and barrel tip.

Makes sense that the tension of the cable spring holds it in place. Think the reason the PO had chicken wire on mine was that the spring was broken and so there was not sufficient tension to hold the end of the cable on the c-lever. That means one less part to look for once I get a decent set of rear cables with unbroken springs
