I need some suggestions for a donor that I can steal the hand controlled e-brake actuator from; between driver and pass. seat. Prefer ford but easiest install is key.
Thanks

the jy are full of escorts and tempo or topaz what ever they were they are dead simple. if you want one for rallying the vw golf brake is simple to mod the ratchet and a return spring and u have a rally brake.used to put two side by side and run a cable from each to its own back wheel cheap steering brakes. i was into dune poppers when i was a kid :rolleyes:

That's kind of where I was going with this idea in my head. Never done or seen it done. So you would pull the right one (passenger) to turn right?

yep thats how we did it back in the day.then you tighten them right up so you just have to pull up on the handle a little to get them to work, to think about it any e brake would work so long as the ratchet mec is gone. prob easer to use ford then it will mesh better

Outrunning Tom S. :D
It's just an idea, not for anything yet.

whats it going to be used for?
Wouldn't it make doing more burnouts a little easier if hooked up to the front brakes? Gave it some thought a while back.
