Parking brake cable grommet...?
« on: November 29, 2018, 01:16:11 PM »
Hi: I have a 76 C-20 2wd. Referring to the photo attached to this message, you see the parking brake cable on the pass side running through a hole in a bracket attached to the frame. Is there supposed to be a grommet or something in this bracket hole? The cable is not wearing out but it is starting to burnish in the hole. I cannot find out if there is a sleeve or grommet in the hole because the repair and parts manuals do not detail this as far as I can tell. I am interested only in restoring back to OEM...no modifications or adapted parts are desired. If anyone knows, it would be appreciated.
Regards,
Henry

There is a reproduction plastic grommet available for that online.

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Hi:
So yes, I was able to find a reproduction grommet from Classis Parts of America that fit perfectly. Also was a easy and drama free installation. Thanks, bd.
Merry Christmas All.
