You can find that guide on http://www.LMCTRUCK.com. I have it in my catalog but you may be able to go to the website and find it on their PDF catalog. Ordering catalogs are also free. It would help ALOT when seqarching for parts. Thier catalogs are JUST for the generation truck that you have. nothing that won't fit your truck. Nothing for Toyota's in your catalog or parts for a 1963 Ford Stepside. Just parts for the 1973-1987 C10 that are all pretty much interchangeable.
The 1998 Chevy Corvette parking brake can be adjusted with the parking brake adjustment bolt. You can also adjust the parking brake cable.
a tear down book should show you
The parking brake has an adjustment bolt on the brake shoe. The parking brake cable has adjustments on each end of the cable.
Look under the area where the brake lever is and follow the cable to the plate on the side where you will find the broken part of the cable pointing to the tab the cable connects to. Pull the tab upward but be warned your arm will get hit by the parking brake itself as it is released.
The 1997 Chrysler Sebring parking brake cable has adjustment nuts on each end of the cable. Adjusting the nuts will lengthen or shorten the parking brake cable.

An e-brake cable is probably frozen up. Replacement is your best option.
Chevrolet Blazer parking brake can be adjusted with the adjustment screw on the parking brake pad. The parking brake can also be adjusted with the parking brake cable.

If the parking brake cable is stuck, it is probably rusted in place. Try squirting WD-40 into the cable itself. If not, you will have to replace the cable.
probably have broken parking brake cable.
If im thinking right about your problem you are showing a light on your dashboard....can be cause bcs cable its stuck or a rear brake cylinder or drum its bad....
That is the parking brake cable. It runs to the rear wheels to engage the parking brake whenever the pedal is depressed. Be sure to use the parking brake whenever you park your vehicle to prevent rust in the parking brake cable and to prevent damage to your Automatic Transmission
If the cable is broken and parking/emergency brake is still ON, then they are rusted in place ! - Your emergency brake system needs urgent work.
If you want the parking brake to work, yes.
parking brake is held on by a ratchet inside the car, ,so if the cable is broken your brakes will not be locked onif they are, you have more than a broken cable problem.--------------I beg to differ. It may be that it's only the release cable that is broken. This was the case in my older (79) Chevy Malibu. It wasn't the actual brake cable that broke. So my parking brake was stuck on. Ok then i did find a little lever part that i could pull back on beneath the dash, it was sort of connected to the parking brake pedal base. Look underneath the dash by the ebrake pedal, see if you can trace the route from the release handle to where its little pull cable might attach. That is the point where you would want to pull back to release the pedal. it worked for me, but of course it's a different type of Chevy. Just be careful as those moving parts will then release and you want to keep your fingers safe.--purry1
If its broken, then the cable is released. IF the breaks are still sticking, then the rear brakes will have to be opened up and the mechanism freed up.
The parking light stays on how am I sure the parking brakes are not on
Look at the two cable going to each drum to see if just one is stuck on or both. IS it drum or disc? It is the emergency brake cable. It happened to me once before and the tow truck driver said the release is the same as in a Cadillac, but that doesn't help me and I can't afford another tow truck driver. In a caddilac you put it in drive to release the parking brake. But when the cable is broken you can't engage the parking brake.
Make sure there is slack in the parking brake cable. Then, hit the drum with a bfh.
# Release the parking brake # Remove the cowl trim panel from the left side of the drivers compartment for access to the parking brake pedal # Pull back on the parking brake cable toward the control assembly (parking brake) and insert a 5/32 inch drill bit into the control actuator to lock the assembly into position # Its actually easier to pull the parking brake cable from under the vehicle but you will need an assistant to help you do this way. # Loosen the rear wheel lug nuts and raise and support the truck # Remove the brake calipers and the brake discs # Detach the parking brake cable from the actuator arm # Clean the parking brake assembly with brake cleaner # Remove the brake shoe retracting spring # Remove the adjusting screw spring and remove the adjusting screw # Remove the hold down springs from the shoes # Remove the parking brake shoes from the actuator

The most likely culprit for a do-nothing parking brake is a misadjusted cable. Generally there is an nut that can be used for adjustment at the rear of the vehicle that will allow you to tighten or loosen the parking brake cable.
Underneath the truck on the passengerside you will find the cable. if your not sure have someone pull brake while your under truck.
