S14 handbrake lever and cables in S12
Posted 08 November 2012 - 06:03 PM
I reckon this will be the easiest way for me to set the handbrake up with the S14 rear calipers.
Hydraulic isn't an option.

I don't understand how it wouldn't work though. I'm replacing the ENTIRE handbrake assembly with that from an S14. Including the rear brake calipers.
The only reason I could see this not working is because the whole axle moves up and down, but it is effectively no different than the IRS moving up and down as the handbrake cable is mounted to the caliper and then to the chassis and then to the handbrake lever. I'd be bolting the S14 cables to the rea calipers in the same manner as if on a S14 then bolt them to the trans tunnel and then running them up to the joiner for the lever.
The S14 calipers pull into the middle as well BTW. At least the ones I have do.

That's why, I no longer have the S14 and didn't decide to go attempt this way with the handbrake until I posted this topic.
since you had both s14 and s12... why not take a look by yourself

Kind of. I am still half working on it. It's all sitting in there. Had to cut an extra hole due to the S14 cable going through the tunnel behind the handle, not under it. The cables are a bit long, but you can put brackets anywhere to hold them in place due to them being in a solid surround.
