Hand Brack Cable End
« on: March 21, 2016, 06:10:00 PM »
I have another stumping question.� What does the cable end connection look like?� It it available?

The hand brake cable sheath needs to be secured somehow.� The parts book indicates a clip on the flywheel for a CJ2A and nothing for a CJ3A.� I found several images on the 2A web site showing a special bracket and a bracket attached to the side of the air filter bracket (2A web site thread: http://www.thecj2apage.com/forums/hole-in-air-filter-bracket_topic19373.html).

What is the correct?� Also, I put a wire clip on the right side harness as it looked like it needed support; is this correct?

Something is missing there...

This first picture might not be clear enough, but there ought to be a bracket on the firewall..I'll look for another picture....I don't remember what I was pointing at or why...

The second picture shows a clip I added to the bellhousing..there already was a hole there...mine was plain but apparently on some they are threaded..you could easily thread it though...

Do you still have your old tub?

Perfect .... I have that bracket that I thought was for a return spring.  I also have the clip because it is the same clip that in attached to the frame member and I bought a new one to replace my bent one.

I appreciate all of your help.

I guess that the wiring harness clip does not fit now that the bolts are used for the bracket.

One of those wires routes around behind the air cleaner...

I think Nate posted a picture on the "From the Factory" section...

Here it is..

Thanks for the additional link, just what I needed.

Now another question, is there a buffer of some sort on the hand brake where it contacts the dashboard?  I think that it needs a felt ring.  I could expand the hole and put a rubber grommet.  What is "normal"?

I bought a couple of packages of these..

http://www.lowbrowcustoms.com/leather-washers-1-diameter-x-1-8-thick-with-3-8-hole-10-pack.html

I put them everywhere, including under the parking brake handle....I may have opened the hole a bit....

I used several on the rear view mirror...
