    I have a 99 F-250 wheel disk brakes. Who ever did the last brake job deleted the whole parking brake setups. My book has a very poor picture of the setup. Anyone have a good one? Also the lever off the cables that is to actuate the brakes. Should it have a pin that it pivots on? I find no pivot point for them. They are just hanging loose on the cable ends.
    Thanks for your help.

    After looking at the parts that are in to hardware kit I got. They gave me the wrong kit. None of the springs match the pictures I have in the Haynes manual.Most of the listings for the calipers are " Loaded" they come with the bracket. I am think the brackets have a pivot pin that's missing on both of mine. I never had easy problems, there's always a hitch in every project!

    You do know that the emergancy brake is on the inside of the brake rotor? The lever is in the backing plate.

    Yeah I know that.There is no pin for the lever to pivot on. It's just a lever held in-place with the rubber boot. We have the official Ford on demand site at work. I am going to ask the head mechanic to get me a better picture. My Wife works part time at a Ford dealer so I can get the correct stuff.

    The parking brake assembly is a dealer only part FYI; about $280 IIRC. Note the caliper position on each side of the truck (front-back).
