Default CPP Rear Disc Emergency Cable Issue

Hi,
I went to install the emergency brake cable for my CPP rear disc brakes on my 57 Chevy (stock rear end). It looks to me like the two shielded segments of the emergency cable are each too long by about 4". Per directions I found at CCI, I attached ends of the shielded segments to the e-brake brackets on the calipers, but to install the other end of the shielded segments to the frame cable brackets, I will have to put a big loop in the shielded segments, and if I do that, then the cable won't reach the front yoke. I measured the length of the shielded segments, and they are each about 29-1/8" long. Hope you understand my description. Hope I was just provided the wrong cable. Any advice?
Thanks, Doug

You are right I've got one From cpp and compared it to the original e-brake and it was four inches longer . I put that with the rest of stuff that wrong , am order different cables from someone else ! I am being to think they do not care if it fit are not all they care about is the $$$ I'd pay extra for a good part that fit not junk that won't fit a VW . Later Jason

Jason,
Thanks for the confirmation. Can you please tell me where you are getting your (correct) replacement cable from, and the part number, if possible?

Also hoping Aaron will chime in on this issue.
Thanks, Doug

Haven't order one yet. I've got a 2001 s-10 blazer disc brake rear end under my car. Haven't had a chance to get back to the e- brake cable . I've got a post on here about the cable . Several have post about custom building something , are ordering one for a blazer. I've got two different problems length and the hooking up to the rear ended . If brulding these car were easy everybody would do it . If and when I found somethings I'll post it here for you and others . Good luck . Later Jason

Hi Jason, thanks for finding that thread:
http://www.trifive.com/forums/showpo...0&postcount=25

That is helpful, thanks for finding that! I had considered doing something similar, using the shorter shielded segments from the original cable, and the new cable from CPP - the article you cited shows me how to make that happen.

I am thinking, since I have everything hooked up to the calipers (it was a bear for my arthritic hands to get the springs on the e-brake bracket on the caliper), I may leave it as is, and extend the rod the yoke attaches to, so it will work. I have a coupling nut, and length of all-thread on order, off of e-bay. I will post back.
Thanks, Doug

Subbed for info. Have purchased kit but have not installed yet. I am installing new brackets to clear my pypes exhaust but sound like my plan has to change.
Thanks

There are a few different adjustors used on these cars originally, When I did my personal 57 using these cables I used the shorter Threaded rod at the center adjuster. I believe I used Danchuk # 1570

So you are saying the cables do work with the stock E brake cable frame brackets in stock location?
Thanks
