Parking brake cable removal ...

I am removing the rear suspension from my 55 (2nd series) Chevy truck. I can't figure out how to remove the emergency brake cable from the drum brake in the rear. I was able to remove the brake shoes from the drum and from the internal e-brake lever. The only thing I can see is to heat the end fo the cable and remove the 'stopper'. Thoughts?

I think there is a clip type retainer holding the cable in the backing plate. Squeeze that clip and the whole mess should pull back thru the brake drum backing plate I think....

Problem solved

Thanks for the advice... after reading your suggestions it made sense - I used a hose clamp. With some pulling it came out. Thanks again!

slip a box end wrench over the cable,

usually about a 9/16, tap it on with a hammer to compress the fingers
