I was wondering how the front parking brake cable is routed. I took pictures of everything before i pulled the body from the frame, unfortunately i did not get this view. The assembly manual and the fisher body manual has been helpful but not for this issue. Any help would be appreciated, pictures would be awesome.

There are tabs under the body the rear cable runs through. The front cable runs through a hole in the frame. It has a clip that holds it in place.

thanks for the reply, I know where it goes on the backside of the frame rail with the clip, my issue is the routing of the cable and which hole it goes through on the front side of the frame rail. I have the original cable that came out of the car and if i hadn't taken it out i would swear it was about 6 inches longer than it should be. Thanks again.

Heres a shot at the crossmember..Make sure you have the positioning rod in place that hooks into the trans crossmember which positions the cable correctly on the passenger side

Ken, thanks for the reply and by the way beautiful underside must be a very nice car. Do you maybe have a picture of how the cable is routed as it comes out of the firewall and where it goes through the frame rail on the front side of the frame rail? I know the hole it goes through on the backside of the frame rail just not the front. Also is the threaded adjuster part of the cable in your picture part of the "front" cable that goes up to the pedal assembly. The car i am doing is also a 4 speed car but the cable is no wheres near that long and does not have a threaded rod for adjusting the cable tension on it. It just has a ferrel or whatever you call the ball on the end of it.

Mystery solved! guys thanks for the help but it appears as though this was the wrong cable to start with. What was throwing me off was that the cable that was in there the cable housing was about 6 inches longer than the cable that belongs in there. And not being a specialist On Impala's I didn,t know that it was the wrong cable that the car came to me with. I'll get some pictures up asap. It should be a real nice car when it's finished. Thanks again for the help, this was my first time on here and you all seem willing to help a guy out.

any chance someone can get me a photo of how this cable goes through the frame? I fed my new one through the firewall, but now need to figure out how it goes through/clips to the frame. thanks.

thanks. no fender well makes a world of difference. got tired of fighting it and took mine off ten minutes ago.

I was correct, the exhaust will be in the way. I had to weld a chain link to my tranny cross member to get somewhere to hang from. some fun.
