FJ40 T-case Drive Line Brake Removal
« on: Dec 25, 2002, 06:41:40 AM »
My 1973 FJ40 has been converted to disc brakes all around...  I am planning using a cadillac caliper cam as an e-brake.

Can the line brake be removed..???  If so this will free up some serious real estate for installing a  Toy Box...

Do you mean the cable? Or Brakelines?

Sounds to me like you want to remove the the parking brake drum, backing plate, assembly, etc.  Given that the brake drum fits on the rear output of the t-case much like a yoke fits on the pinion, I don't believe you'll pick up ANY extra length by removing and replacing with a normal yoke.  I do believe however that the drum shaft OD and the spline count is the same as a pinion tho, so you could at least drop a few # of weight there.  Any additional length changes would require an outputshaft modification - shorten, machine down for new locking nut, new seal, possible new rear bearing, etc....more $$ than it's worth.

You'll pick up 3.5" of wheelbase reversing the rear leaf packs.  That's the normal change for added driveline needs.
