Dodge has them too, uses the same rear ends, and the park brake drums don't impress me. Jacks disk is better, or the Honda disk park.

So far, except for a few of my hours, all Norm has in this mod is the $21 the master cylinder cost, he has the caliper, pads, I have lathes, mills, welders and plasma cutters and the strong desire to hack up other peoples equipment. We shall get it done.

This looks like a great solution. I'd guess it being a backhoe you can just stick the bucket in the ground if you need a parking brake.

Welp, the Mark 1 bracket was a dismal failure, the caliper interfered with the side of the transmission. So we have moved on to the Mark 3, the Mark 2 was a concept that died on paper. I drilled out the broken bleeder, cleaned out and reassembled the caliper. Made the new bracket, Norm stopped by to supervise and we finalized the mounting brackets and some of the mounting hardware. We are planning a Saturday test fit, and hopefully avoid the Mark 4. I will submit some pictures if the owner, signs the release.

After the shop clean up, we went and bought hardware, nuts and bolts and then got sleazy sausage sandwiches from the hot dog truck in the parking lot of the industrial supplier.

Norm and I had worked on the revised bracket, it was finished last week. After days of rain, other scheduled events, we started at 10 am, this morning, we ended up with the caliper mounted at about about 12:30 pm. We had loaded up and went to lunch, picked up a 8” piece of brake tubing, that I bent to the required shape.

The caliper is mounted, we shall see how it works, later in the week, to determine whether the Mark 4, 5 or 6 is going to be needed.

Here are a few pictures of the brake conversion and the backhoe, the technical question, about the construction will have to be answered by Norm

The mounts look strong enough, especially as it is a park brake. It should be good.
