Cutting Brakes
« on: Aug 21, 2006, 10:19:09 PM »
    :help:Hi, I managed to break my parking brake cable on my '84 4Runner so I was thinking about making cutting brakes.   For those who dont know cutting brakes allow you to apply the brake to the left or right wheel individually.  This could be used to take the place of a locker and also be used to aid in hard cornering (if you know what you are doing).  I was thinking that I would run two seperate cables to the left and right parking brakes and make two seperate handles to pull the cables.  Mount some pulleys to route the cables and your done, right?  If anyone has done this or has any comments or suggestions please let me know.  Thanks in advance. :turtle:

This has been tried before.
Could not get enought force to lock up the axle from the brake shoes or disk pads.
Also, too much to do and still drive the truck. Hard to pull cables and still work the gas ect.

  :dunno: How would a person go about doing it hydraulically?  I have seen brake proportioning valves made by willwood and other companies and was wondering if you could use one for cutting brakes.  You would have to depress the brake pedal to make it work but that would also put the front brake on.  I have also heard of hydraulic parking brakes that you could use but have been unable to find any.  :turtle3:
