Well I got my 3spd trans case rebuilt and when I took off the e-brake it was filled with grease and did not work well. My question is what other options are there for e-brakes. I want a disc one but man-a-free does not sell them anymore. Any ideas? <IMG SRC="smilies/laughing.gif" border="0">

Downey sells them but they are bucks up. It would be cheaper to buy their disc brake rear kit that comes with a parking brake built in. It's half the price and you get rear discs in the process.

Actually, I find that the stock parking brake, when properly dry and adjusted, works quite well. You may need only to stop the oil leak (a new output shaft oil seal, maybe a speedy-sleeve) and put on new shoes.

The factory one works well, but I have replaced it two or three times in my 8 years of cruiserdom, and like the rest of the cruiser braking, is manually adjusted- often.

It is not a bad setup, but it gets pretty marginal on steep hills, even new.

That being said- it is still in mine,and works well enough for me to not really think about replacing it yet.
Stay on the brake, make the passenger spool out the winch. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

1970cruiser, I had a problem with mine until I adjusted the outer cable housing at the firewall, the inside cable stretches and you must lengthen the outer housing by unlocking the the nut under the firewall and adjusting the other on the forward side, my e-brake handle comes out now about 3 clicks and holds the rig on the driveway while idling in gear........Frank
