Hello everyone and thank you for letting me join. Im restoring a 49 3800 flatbed trucks and the emergency brake lever was laying in the cab when it was delivered. I attempted to locate images of the 'E" brake configuration but to no avail. It is the through the floor lever that attaches to the transmission. I have to find a c lip that fits and there is no mechanism to make it stay on. there is a trigger leaver to disengage it but nothing for it to catch when engaged. Its got the big granny gear 4 speed manual trans. Funny the cable was connected and I can put it on the pivot shaft, but thats it. haven't been able to find the or a "c' clip for it. The client wanted a 235 in it. Done and the brakes are rebuilt, but im stuck on the "E" brake.
thank you for your time.

Does it have the ring on the drive shaft type brake? I have an old big 4 speed with pto that I don't know what it came out of but has lever brake self contained on tranny. Looks like a chevy.

Please take a shot straight on from the front to show what the bolt pattern looks like.

The 1949 transmission mount parking brake was probably different in some aspects to the 1954 parking brake [shown]. But I would image there were some similarities as well. The LOCK 358829 is a full circle type lock that is bent to remove and bent to stay on.

It's a sm420 standard bolt pattern on the front. The diagram is much better than my picture.

Thank you for the pic. I didn't realize you already knew it was a GM trans when I asked, so I apologize for putting you to the extra trouble.

No trouble at all Ray. I finally scraped of some crud and looked at the numbers. I was just lazy before.

That is better than what I have.... I dont have

3694589 sp pin
thats a great image. where did you get it from,
my truck is a 49 3800. its got the big granny gear reverse and three other gears... its a beast. but I believe the hardware should be the same. If i could find an image like the one you found.... maybe i will go up to the Nethercutt collection in Sylmar and go through there library. but if you want to sell those pieces listed, that would be great.

I bought 3 250's for $300 and the guy through in the trani and a pile of flywheel's and clutches and some other stuff. Not interested in breaking it up. Sorry.

If you're referring to the line drawing of the transmission it is from the 1947-55 1st Series Truck Assembly Manual. These are available from some of the usual suspects...Jim Carter, Truck Shop, and the like. I have seen them with a different cover however...usually about $20-$30 - I think. It's a great reference book.

If you still need parts in a month or so when it warms up I can go to the secret junk yard in the woods and probably get you the whole lever setup for just a few bucks.
