I'm in the process of re-doing my rear brakes and am about to replace the rear emerg. brake cable, but one thing puzzles me.
The end of the cable that goes to the link in the drum is about 1" longer than the original. It looks like it will bunch up in there when everything is assembled and cause my brakes not to work properly.
Do you guys think that it will happen, or will the tension on the entire cable shorten this? I got the cable from MU about 3 years ago, so returning it will be out of the question.

Since the '66 uses a one piece cable, the cable adjuster will probably be able to cope with a slightly longer assembly once everything is hooked up.
