Anyone got pics of parking brake cable routing?

I just picked up a 55 CJ-5 and there seems to be a few parts missing from the parking brake assembly.

The handle is there and the cable attached to it. But it ends at the turnbuckle right under the driver's seat. I don't even see a way for cables to get through the backing plates on the rear drums.

Also, does anyone know of a trick to getting the drums off? I got all three of the flat head slot screws out, but the drums feel like they are part of the axle shaft. I know they aren't, but they don't move at all. Even with a little persuasion from a BFH.

I appreciate any and all help.

Weren't the parking brakes on those located on the back of the transfercase?

Not that I know of. I know my brother's '65 Land Rover has one like that. I had seriously thought about fabbing one up on the rear of the transfer case, but without a half shaft it's next to impossible.

The park brake was definately on the back of the transfer case. That turn buckle on your cable would have attached to the operating lever for the park brake.

Go to Morris 4x4. Look brake parts. There you will see a 3 leg puller used to pull the rear brake hubs off the axles. Rental yards used to rent them 30 years ago. Today ???

Here is the setup-- the cable attached to the crossmember and the clevis operated the parking brake lever in the picture.

If that's the case, then someone went to a LOT of trouble to remove ALL of the e-brake components from my Jeep.

Edited to add a better pic.

Except if you look in the diagram in post #7 everything goes BEHIND the output shaft yoke. So that would have to come out of the transfer case to get the drum and backing plate off, then be put back in the transfer case.

The only thing I can think of is someone put a twin stick transfer case in (same shifting pattern as the original dash plaque shows) to replace the original. And the replacement didn't have an e-brake on it. Just seems weird that the transfer case and the transmission have the same layers of grime on them...

still no trouble, slide the yoke off.
I was assuming that was obvious.
It's not rocket surgery.

Sorry, I looked at another (more detailed) diagram and realized the yoke only bolts onto the output shaft. I thought the yoke WAS the output shaft.

Ok, so now it's just a matter of finding all of the parts to make an e-brake out of (backing plate, shoes, drum, etc. I can get the shoes locally and the drum from Morris. But the backing plate is proving to be a little more difficult to locate.

looks to me like it simply bolts to the output yoke inbetween it and the driveshaft
