  1. well guys i drilled a hole where it looked good for the cable to go through and i found out i do not have a tube built in to guide a cable down into the frame rail ....i tried using a wire to see if i could get it through but that didnt work.....i put a nut on a string and sent that down to see if that would work with a magnet to try and find it.....didnt work...... there has to be some way to do this.....get something through so i can tie the cable to it and pull it up through the floor............ any ideas? the car is on jack stands dash is mostly out -- it need to get this done so i can put the dash back in...........never a dull moment here.......any ideas would be appreciated!! thanks ed

  13. how in the hell do you get the old cables out of the backing plate in rear drum brakes to replace with new cables.....i bought the lisle tool to do it but it doesnt budge the metal spider to pull them out.......... there has to be another secret???? the old cables dont look that bad but i thought since i am replacing everything it would be wise to do it now......i may not be wise!!! ed
