The remaining items left to finish were the brake hose, driveshaft and parking brake cables. A new rear brake hose was bought at the local parts house and installed, and the u-joints mated
exactly to the original rearend. The only dilemma was sorting out the brake cables, but a simple solution was to reuse the original factory units with the new rearend. Ultimately, the intermediate cable can be lengthened or shortened for a custom fit, if needed.
