Need advise on parking brake

My hot rod project has disc brake 9" rear and there is no e brake provisions on them I am looking for a disc brake that mounts on the drive line or pinion yoke
for a 9" ford that I can hook up to the factory e brake handle. Anyone know where I can find something like that car is a stick shift and I am feeling like I need an e brake

big bucks ?

I have seen the pinion e brakes priced about $ 500, too much for Me..What calipers do you have, some of the first Disc brake conversions used GM caddy Eldo rear calipers that have the lever type of E brake built in, a lot of kits use GM front calipers. the Eldo Rears Might fit. My antique 22 Ford Racer has the stock brakes inside the transmission If you twist an axle or break a u joint you lose braking, I added Rocky Mountain Brakes at the rear wheels.

You can find what you need here. You will have to fabricate a mount for the caliperand cable, and possibly a new disc.

Off-topic ... I know, and sorry.

But where did you get that speedo?
It *sort of* reminds me of the "thermometer style" one in my first car, a 1955Pontiac Pathfinder Deluxe.

Of course it didn't read to 160 (Unless that is KPH)

Its a reproduced after market part most all the gauges are in the car

I am undecided on weather to swap the rear brake kit or get the speedway pinion brake kit (400 with a cable) it looks like it has Jeep or explorer calipers but there is no e brake in there like my Jeep has? need to look a little closer, its a Dutchman 9" disc rear end I have ignored the whole e brake thing long enough I need to figure out whats the best rout to go getting very close need to figure out wheels and tires and just a couple loose ends and she is ready to cruze!
