Re: FRONT Brake cable replacement, 1990 4WD S10 Blazer???
Are you talking about the front E-brake cable, if so be prepared to do a lot of swearing when you realize that the new after market cable will not go in with out some modifications. First get a small hose clamp to wrap around the old retaining clip and then tighten it down so you can pull the cable and clip through the hole they are ankered in. You may or may not have to make the hole the cable locks into bigger, on my truck I had to make the hole bigger because the new cable and clip was too big for the stock hole. Another piece you may or my not have to modify is the nub that is on the end of the cable, not the threaded end, the nub may be to big the fit into the hook the old cable came out of, if it is you are going to want to use a dermel to make it smaller. Its relatively easy to do if you have factory parts but the quality control differences in the aftermarket parts are what makes it a pain in the butt to put the new aftermarket part on.
I'll see if I can get some pictures for you.
