LM Parking Brake Cable Retainers
Posted by: Aaron65 ()

Hello Everyone,

I just replaced my parking brake cables on my '65 (front to back), and I noticed that my car is missing the cable retainers for the underbody brackets (not the suspension "loops"). Has anyone tried a brake hose retainer or wire clip that you bought locally? If so, could you give me a part number/size/place you bought it?

I'd order some from Clark's and be done with it, but I don't have anything I really need right now and I'd rather not pay shipping on something so small. Thanks if you can help!

You should show your location someone here may be close to you. Also club members if a club is near you.

Go to local auto parts store and ask for them. Brake hose end fitting is 1/2". Parking brake cable retainer is smaller.

While you're down there, consider replacing the cable pulleys with some Roger Parent specials.

I just ended up finding two of these clips at the local Auto Value. They seem to fit well and I think they'll work. If I remember, I'll order the correct ones next time I have an order in with Clark's.

Not correct clip. They're horseshoe shaped sheet metal retainers.

Yeah, they didn't have them in the correct size (7/16" based on my measurement) at the two parts stores I visited. Clark's offers a wire clip as a cheaper alternative to the horseshoe clip, and my car is far from the kind of car where correctness is an issue. I'll order the correct clips the next time I need some parts.
