Default Emergency brake help

I think Iím posting in the right place. 1998 Cherokee Sport. 4.0 I6. 4WD auto. I am replacing everything for my rear brakes. Drums, backing plates, shoes, hardware, and new steel lines. I got one side torn down, and my new backing plate and wheel cylinder on. Itís ready to be put back together.

However, I am having trouble getting the parking brake back on the spring. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. First time XJ owner. Need all the help I can get.

You have to pull that spring back on the cable, insert the cable on the arm at 90į to the direction of pull then release the spring. It acts to push the arm back when you release the brake as well as hold the cable in the arm. However I am wondering if all the arm is there. Kind of looks like part of the cable area is missing

I canít get the spring pushed back anywhere near close enough to fit the brake onto it. And itís quite possible that there is a piece missing. These brakes were in horrid shape. Iím not familiar with what the cable is supposed to look like, and the FSM is 0 help on this. According to it I just have to take the part off, and put it back on. Ugh

This will probably seem like a dumb question. As I was replacing the shoes, I noticed only one side had the brake shoe guide plate installed. Having difficulty locating one at the nearby parts stores. Is this necessary when installing new shoes? Curious since there wasnít one on one of the sides before.

I think so.

That is going to be a tough find new.

I remember when I did my rear brakes in my '00. I replaced almost everything except for the one thing that you started your thread about. The parking brake lever. Cause I did not want to mess with it. And that piece. But only cause I could not find one new. I even bought new parking brake bars just cause I could. Like that was necessary. LOL.

For 9" brakes which I am assuming you have the part number is 4313075.
Thinking your best bet is going to be a boneyard.

If we sell that part I could not find it.
And I looked as best I could.
Also I believe that part to be on a variety of Jeeps.
YJ and ZJ that have 9" brakes for starters.
