Coming over from the WJ board. Has anyone had the cable snap at the handle end releasing the tension in spring? The WJ brake handle is slightly different in that it doesn't have the extended drum on the other side of the cable drum. It has the riveted section then the cable drum sprocket that holds the tension of the spring. There is a stopper arm that when the handle is pulled up, is engaged to the sprocket and pulls it tight to engage the parking brake.

I have attached the parking brake cable from the handle to the equalizer bar, but it appears the the cable drum sprocket is wound to far to be able to engage with the arm to pull it up. I have checked the replacement part and it is the same length of the OEM.

I am at a stand still now and need any kind of help and at wits end.

Thought this was a long shot, but would try anyway.

Thanks

It sounds like you need to give the drum one full turn before attaching the cable.
I have no experience with yours so this is just a guess!

Thread revival.
I have been searching on this as I just had the SNAP on my 2007.
Anyone done a write up on how to replace that spring, or have some tip/tricks on its replacement?
I really dont want to pay someone to fix this, so would like to get the parts ordered and fix it my self. I normally never use the e-break but its a real pain in the *** when putting the boat in the lake without it
Thanks
