e brake cables axle swap

workin on a 67 chevy 3/4 ton. Was a 2x4 now is a 4x4 with a 60 up front and a 14bolt ff out back with 05 2500 hd springs. I am looking for the best way to hook up the e brake cables. The 14 bolt cables are still there out of the drums but appear to be too short. I converted the 67 from the hand pull e brake to the foot e brake pedal out of a 71 pickup. Basically i need all the cables to get from the foot pedal to the 14 bolt ff. Anyone have any ideas on what truck I can rob to get something that will work or what company that may sell a universal kit I can make work? Any pics of your set ups? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you, TTL

Ill take some pics tomorrow of what i did. I dont remember what parts i used but once i look at it it should come back to me. But i did buy some parts/cables from lmctruck parts and classicparts.com If you also post a pic of yours i could probably help you better also.

lokar, see summit racing. I have the universal kit that you basically cut to fit after youve measure it all out of course. simple. My only thing is I have acable on each side that goes to a backet/cable casing holder snd then its supposed to be joined by a couple on each side end then a single cable running from the center of the trans xmember where the pull is even on both sides, well Id like to get a ballend on the cable end.

Do you think the brass block with the tension screws are trustworthy? Just asking since youve used it already and I have the same basic cables, but Im running the cables up each individual side.
