    Thanks Nick, you seem like the guy who'd know. Obviously these are hard to find and there's quite a few that are similar...so I need to make sure these are the right ones. I've contemplated the rear disc E-Parking Brake Conversion available through Brennan, but my current non-power disc-drum combo works darn well and it's simple. I'm not sure I want to re-do the M/C configuration. I just want to ditch this T-case parking brake.

    Those will work fine. Most of these I have found were made for the flanged axle housing with is flat across the top. I have used a bunch of them by doing the same as has already been done on the ones pictured which is drill two holes for the two upper bolts on a non flanged axle housing.

    I would be interested in parts for the driveline parking brake, if you are going to "ditch" yours.

    Oldpappy, thanks again for the reply. Part of my caution here is that I've got a custom 3" tube High Pinon Dana 44 rear axle. It has what I believe to be flanged 44 outers, but its a full floater with custom cut axles...6 bolt 11" brakes. At first I was uneasy about running on the coast side of the gears. But I like it now. The drive line is tucked up nice and high and the angle is a non-issue with my lift. It was built by a reputable shop and the builder swears by it. So now I'm thinking of doing a JANA 54 with it, to beef it up some....I don't know..maybe.

    I was going to keep the old parking brake set-up, but I'm not really a parts collector. Everything is in pretty good shape. So once I have this reconfigured, if your'e still interested, you can have first dibs on it.

    I’ve built tons of high pinion 44 rears with no issues as long as pinion angles is not too steep o the pinion bearings get oiled properly. They are slightly weaker running on the coast side but really not an issue for most people.

    Nick, I was wondering, since this is your profession. What do you think of the Jantz Engineering stuff? I've been thinking of the Jana 54 set up. Seems intriguing. JANA 54

    I always appreciate the great advice that you provide here.
