1943 MB Emergency Brake Handle, Cable & Clamps
The 1943 MB that I acquired did not come with ebrake handle, cable or clamps.
I ordered the replacement parts from Ron Fitzpatrick Jeep Parts. http://www.vintagejeeps.com/
was right and spec for a 1943 MB
ebrake cable is plastic coated and the clamps are a little tight. I modified
them to fit.
I made the clamp for the top at the air cleaner bracket. Rolled a piece of strap around a 5/16 pin, welded a tab on the bottom to keep it from turning. Then dimpled the firewall side of the clamp to keep the cable from sliding through when the handle is pulled.
The routing of the cable down towards the cross-member & clamp are shown here
