Wilwood emergency/parking brake brackets


Recommended Posts

Hi Alex...

Sorry to hear you are having these problems. As you said... not unexpected, as I clearly documented these issues with the stock cable before the ordering process began.

The only way i see if rectifying the problem, would be to remove the extra tab on the lever arm entirely, then grinding the arm to shape so that it will accept the cable clevis. If you do this, ensure you remove as little material as possible whilst still allowing free travel of the clevis through the whole travel arc of the lever

Keep us informed how you go!

Warren

I wish I still lived in SoCal, where they have everything one might be looking for (speed shops etc.)  I think I'd have my brackets yellow zinc dipped, instead of powdercoated....

 

When you live where I am, there are no good places like that locally ...   :(

Hey Woza01,  a lurker here. I know this is a very old thread, but if you’re out there, are you still willing to email your drawings for the AZC parking brake ready bracket? Like others, I found using a wheel chock has become tiresome.

PM sent in regards to these brackets

Ended up drawing making my own since I have the CAD, 3D printer and CNC machine available. Im sharing this because I have tested these parking brake calipers and they do work good as a parking brake. Not made for anything else but just for parking. 
 

I also made custom brackets for the Brembo’s too. Both are separate pieces just in case I want to swap one of them out for something else.

I think I’m going to install a ball valve in the trans tunnel to lock my rear brakes. It will lock whatever pressure I have in the rear brake line and act as a super simple “parking brake”. I have front/rear MC’s, so it will just be my rear calipers. 
 

adding an additional caliper is ideal, but this is for a race car and I seldom need a parking brake.
