Help with 68 camaro emergency brake install disc brake

Hey guys if anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it

I just had a complete front and rear disc brakes kit by cpp installed on my 68 camaro but having problems trying to install the emerg brake cable to the body and calipers.
1) Isnt there suppose to be brackets for the brake cables? i was told i have to fabricate brackets for this functon is this true?

2)also would I have to rebleed the whole system once I put in the e brake cable?

If your "kit" utilizes a small drum style parking brake, the cables should install very similar to stock. Did CPP suggest that you had to fabricate brackets for the parking brake cables?

If your rear calipers use the GM style with the cam operated parking brake, once again the cables should install similar to stock. The initial adjustment of this style calipers is time consuming and very critical as to the function of the rear calipers. I can post the instructions if needed.

You may have to run parking brake cables that have a locknut to attach at the rear calipers. Lokar is a good source.

Unless you have dis-connected the brake lines from the calipers, then, No, you will not have to rebleed the system after installing the parking brake cables.

If you could post a picture of the rear caliper it would help to assist you as to what may be required to install the parking brake cables.

I have attached the instructions as to how to adjust the GM rear calipers that have the built in cam operated parking brake. If this is the style of rear calipers you have, these instructions will help.
