1984 GMC S15 emergency brake cable at rear backing plate
1984 GMC S15
I have had to replace the rear backing plates. Is there a tool to compress the spring on e-brake cable at the backing plate to re-attach the the lever arm to the cable?
have the same problem?

No! I use 2 pair of sidecutters, put them together at the nub, spread the spring, hold and install lever, fairly simple!

Thanks been tryining to do it bare handed with plyers. Don't have side cutter's though.

You can use any pliers, dykes work best!
