I am just wondering how some of you guys route your parking brake cable.

Mine center cable is currently routed below my exhaust system (2 1/2 duals) which is not working. I think it should be routed above the exhaust but where it would go there isn't enough clearance in between the H-pipe and the drive shaft.

I do have some diagrams of the internet but they don't work for me.

Any suggestions?

Hans make sure you have all the little hangars in place and the cable will be routed down the pass and drivers side of the car.

Thanks for the link! I thought I've seen all the different configurations; this one actually makes sense because it looks like the cable crosses in front of the drive shaft and across/above the transmission tail shaft.

I already bought some 3/16" round stock to make guides (may have to upgrade to 1/4" though). My car is currently on jack stands so I will check this weekend.

You can buy all of the hangers as a kit from most of the restoration supply houses.

I think one of my issues is that I have a 200R4 transmission in my car. The transmission, as far as I know, is longer than a TH400 which moves the crossmember back.

No matter what, I will get my cable routing done in way so I can use my parking brake. My driveway has an incline and I don't like having all that pressure on the park pawl inside the transmission; not to mention it is hard to get out of PARK.

I'm running a 4L80E using a th350 hook and shorter intermediate cable I got at NAPA.
