Need HELP finding brake parts!!!

I am currently rebuilding the brakes on my recently acquired '63 T'Bird.

I want/need to replace the self-adjusting cable assembly (not to be confused with the parking brake cable) on each wheel. This is the small braided cable on each wheel that activates the self-adjusting brake pawl.

So far, I have been unable to locate a source for them.

Does anyone have any info re where I might find some (preferably NOT the bone yard)?

thanx,

texastomeh

That small cable should come with a "brake hardware kit"

I agree with the other folks should be easy to find and come in your kit...if not try Kanter Products they advertise a lot in Hemmings
