ideas needed for original parts for 66 cj

Hello all, My rig did not come with an emergency brake and I am trying to do my best and find original style parts. Does anyone know of the original E brake design for my dauntless, t-90. A few retailers would also be helpful. Thanks.

check out ebay. i have a old 55 M38A1 and it didnt come with the emergency brake either. ive seen a few of them on there. the cheapest way is to install a line lock, electric. you know you put the brakes on then flip the switch and it keeps the fluid from going back into the master cylinder. ive thought of doing it on my jeep but really havent had any great need for it as of yet.

Line locks are not a good idea for parking brakes, especially on older vehicles with iffy wheel cylinders. Any loss of pressure will allow the vehicle to roll, usually at the worst time. E bay, earlycj5.com, or any of the other early cj sites usually has somebody with misc extra stock parts to reinstall the original driveline brake. While much better than hydraulic park brakes, these are still not the optimal option since a lost u joint or other drivetrain part will still keep the system from working. Personally, I would recomend a swap to early Waggy brakes. These 11" brakes are a virtual bolt in swap and will give you not only vastly improved braking, but a rear drum cable operated e brake system as well.

Great thanks, Should I just measure the run length for the cables and look for parts accordingly? I assume there will be a cable splitter as well to activate both drums. Do you know if the original cj's had a pull up style break or pedal? Thanks again.
