E Brake cables for '50 F1

Hello, have purchased and returned several repro E Brake cables for my '50 F1 1/2 ton because the ends of cable housing were wrong diameter, or just poor quality. My rear cables are nice, just need cleaning up. The front is fraying. Hoping someone knows of a tool to do a factory type swage, or somewhere I can send to have done. Would plan to make new factory style threaded end fittings unless available. Last, wondering if member Denny ever went into production, or anyone knows of an after market gator or boot of right dimensions for rear cables. Thank You! Brad

I got my front cable from mid fifty for my 49 and it fit good. I used rear cables for a 56 and made a bracket mounted to the bottom of the cab then hooked them up to my 9 inch rear end. It all works good.

I added the rear cable boot to post #5 along with its applications. No one has any.

Hey Brad,
Welcome Aboard! Let's see what you are working with over there in Oregon.
Pictures are always appreciated.

We used an emergency brake from a 2001 Ford Explorer for our '50 F1.
We also used the 8.8 rear axle set up from the same Explorer. It's the modern type
with a handle don in the front driver's side footwell.

Ben in Austin
1950 F1

Ben, much appreciated. My truck is in assembly stage, frame off. Stock configuration, so cable needs to for up like original. Brad
