E-brake on driveshaft f350 drw

My buddies 97 f350 dually has an e-brake on the drive shaft. Obviously it doesnít work and Iíd like to rebuild, found a kit on eBay but I canít find any info on anywhere on the web. Havenít taken anything apart yet just doing some footwork so I kinda have an idea of what Iím doing. It basically looks like a rear drum brake. Am I wrong? Iíve found rebuilt units ranging from $900 to $1500 but rebuild kit is less then $200.
Looking for a write up or something with info. Any of you guys have experience with these things?

Try following this link, it's the one I liked. Lots of good pictures and a parts breakdown.

Re: E-brake on driveshaft f350 drw

if it is a F350, the parking brake should be part of the rear brakes. if it is indeed on the back of the transmission, than it is a F-Superduty, or someone swapped a F-Superduty trans into the F350.

^^^^^ What the window licking paste eater said

Most of the time driveshaft drums don't need rebuilt, the shoes are either loose, or the cable/ linkage is out of adjustment.

Re: E-brake on driveshaft f350 drw

Before chasing and paying for parts that are not needed I would check and see if there is a e-cable going to the rear drums.

As the two above said the F350 had the e-brake on the wheels where the F Superduty had it on the transmission

I was under the impression they were an option for the cab and chassis f-350's. Is that not the case?

nope. only the F-Superduty got it, because they had 4 wheel disc brakes.
and vehicle that has rear drum brakes had parking brake in the rear drums.

Re: E-brake on driveshaft f350 drw

My e 450 has one too. rule of thumb. Dual wheels and payload of 25,000 will get you a trans park brake

easy to tell if the brake belongs on the truck, there is no dust shield on the rear rotors, and no park brake shoes inside.

Tried to post pictures, but said file is too big. IDK, never had that problem before

Thanks for the enlightenment on the matter.

How did tjctransport get elected "window licking paste eater"?
