Hey, I'm wondering, what is the difference between EF and EL handbrake setups? I've been told they are different but I'm not too sure how. I am having alot of trouble trying to adjust my handbrake, and I'm not too sure if there's even any point in me adjusting it until I get my new rear rotors that I am getting soon. I have acsess to an EF parts car but I am running an EL diff. One of the adjusters seems to have worn out teeth and it's really hard to turn. What are my options for adjusting my handbrake? Which bits do I need to buy and can I rip any of it off my parts car?

Cheers, Gab

The cable run past the diff hat is different between the sedans and wagons - mainly due to the watts linkage pivot. I think there was a difference in this area between the EF/EL sedans too.
Adjusters, brake shoe, etc should be interchangeable.
