Wilwood Parking Brake Cable

We have installed Wilwood rear disc kit on a '66 GTO and are getting custom cables made to utilize the "factory" cable setup. Can any one provide the length of the cable that is from the frame hole where the housing stops / connects to the intermediate cable links?

Attached is a file that has a simple drawing of the cable setup. Need the far lefthand length measurement (the one within the circle).

Thanks,

David

David, while I don't have that measurement for you, I would simply substitute some twine for that cable and measure that.

You're making it too hard. I used a Lokar 'cut to fit' e-brake cable kit with my Wilwood's and they worked just fine.
