Default Ford 9" rear end which e-brake cable do you run?

Hi!
When you use a Ford 9" rear end with drums, from which car or part number do you have on the E-brake cable?

Thanks! // Roger .

Depends on the brake setup I have seen them use stock cables with some combos.

I bought one from Eckler's for my 9"

all other components of e-brake are stock.

I can say that stock trifive cables do not work well with 10" drums typically found on a 9" F*&D. I used stock cables, and had to shorten the springs between the backing plate keeper and the nut on the tip to take up enough slack. This caused another issue with the overall length of the cables being too long. To fix that, I put a small clamp near the U-bracket to take up the slack.. I got the lash up to work, but, not before much pain.

I would buy the Elker's cables made for 9"

Yep, I also shortened that spring a bit as well on the 10" drums...good point. This e brake cable worked on either 10" or 11" drums (I've used on both)

Until I changed my Ford 9" to disc, I used the factory Chevy front cable and the factory Ford 9" drum e-brake cables. I just cut them to length, then used small cable clamps to join them together. I used that combo for many years prior to the conversion without any issues at all.

Thank you all!
I have not found all original stuff for the e-brake such as T-handle, brackets....etc. Brackets on frame are cut.
The car came in boxes and was not complete either.
So prepare for more questions from me
