48 Chevy SD factory parking brake

I am considering using the factory parking brake lever under the dash of my 48 Chevy Sedan Delivery street rod project instead of a floor mount. I have a Muncie 4-speed and am thinking about making a console so a floor mount handle would be in the way. The factory handle is in great shape (once I clean it up and paint it) but I don't recall how the cables ran from the stock handle. I have a GM 10-bolt rear end.

Does anyone have a diagram or photos or explanation of how the cable would run? Advice is always welcome too! See my journal to see how the car is coming.

Thank you.
Bear Lake Rodder

Stock it did not have a front cable. There was a rod from the handle to a belcrank on the frame. The belcrank almost always interferes with a V8 engine and are removed.

what's a bellcrank?

Thanks for the reply about the rod and bellcrank. I must have those in my boxes of stuff off the car. What does a "bellcrank" look like? It's tough gettin' old and forgettin' stuff!
