My e/brake cables are on the exhaust as it passes over the car to r/rear wheel . Not sure if all the parts are there but looks like it . It's a 76 f/bird w/duals ,stock mnfld. ,The ex. was on it when I got it so I didn't see it w/original single ex. Does anyone have a pic of the under side that may show the correct design ? Thanks

I'm using all the brackets and hooks that were available at the time of installation . The new cables were installed according to what info and diagrams that I found . I'll check at a couple ex shops and see if they've run across this problem . I thought maybe I might use a small bit of header wrap and wind it around the cable where it contacts the pipes ?

Jogs a memory. I kinda remember a type of rubber sleeve on a 76 FB i had years n years ago. Maybe 6" or a little longer in that area. Had small hose type clamps holding the sleeve in place. May or may not have been stock. It's an idea for you though. Cut a piece of proper diameter fuel line length wise and about 6" or so long. Wrap it around the cable, Estimate the travel, and clamp it in placewith a couple of your standard type hose clamps, mark the true travel between brake on and off then adjust accordingly and tighten. Good luck. Btw, 6" is just a guess from memory, you may need a longer piece.

I thought the gas line would melt some on the ex/pipes ? Maybe it's not that hot mid way of ex ? Thanks

They really shouldn't be an issue, mine do touch when they're loose, since i put new on i haven't had any issues (i got a whole new kit from inline tube and it was great and well worth the money), everything lined up perfect except i had to drill my aftermarket tranny x-member for the hook on the passenger side.
