Rebuilding 86 CJ-7 Parking Brake Assembly

Has anyone here every re-built the parking brake assembly? I was going to just buy a new one but seeing that its close to $300 for a new one I would prefer to try and save the one I currently have in there.

What's wrong with the current one you have?

Sometimes the pivot point gets worn but a ball peen hammer can bring it back to like new condition by peening the rivet head to tighten it back up.

Yeah they are stupid expensive. Mine works okay but it is a little loosey-goosey. I'm going to pull it and see what I can do with it when I do my interior work, but that may not be anytime soon. If you decide to pull it, take pics and write it up
