Disconnecting Front Handbrake
Posted 20 November 2009 - 02:34 PM
I've got a 1989 DL Wagon, EA82 Carb 5sp DR
The 4 Wheel handbrake is handy sometimes, but for me, I just wanna have fun, (which might mean sliding the rump roast around a little ) so I was wondering if anyone knew how to disconnect the front brakes from the handbrake mechanism without messing with the normal braking of the car or rendering the entire handbrake useless...
Any help would be appreciated.

If you do the rear disc brake conversion and use calipers from a 240 SX you can rig up a rear parking brake.

Can you elaborate on which hubs and discs to use?

I agree with Tom, flick it into 4wd and hit the dirt tracks.

I preffer to have the e-brake on the front for emergency and for the fact that on a slippery slope the stopped wheels are the ones with more weight on them.
Additionally, you can seperate the two cables to each use a seperate lever for each. This allows you to lock a freespinning(unloaded) wheel and transfer power to the one on the ground still to get over obstacles. It allows a fair amount of brake steering in the mud.

With the addition of the 240 SX rear calipers you could have 4 individual brake lever's.... though I'm not at all sure where I would put them :-\
Some up there, some down there, some on the sides. Levers galor!
