Hello all! Thought I would do a quick update.

Thank you so much for the information so far. Thanks to you I have the correct brake parts now installed, and new lines ran. I did find a very interesting brakeline setup while doing this - it seems the previous owner ran brake line frome the Master cylinder, through the firewall to a switch that operates the brake lights (and has a handle for some reason as well), then back through the firewall down to the first Tee. I don't imagine this was stock haha, seems maybe the brake light switch stopped working and this was their solution? I have no idea. I will fix this eventually after some more pressing repairs.

Now that the wheels are done I am ready to move on to the emergency brake pads, which leads me to my next question:
How do I remove the emergency brake assembly so I can put new brake material on? I have the material and rivets ready to go. I searched the forums best I could for this information, as well as the manual, but had no luck. If anyone can link me to a how-to it would be much appreciated!

Thanks again!

If memory serves -- someone redid their eBrake band using material from McMaster Carr and their oven... I took the easy route and had someone else do it!

Smart! I originally tried to find someone to re-line it for me as well, but every shop I called said they don't do that kind anymore and don't know of anyone who does.

I'm going to attempt doing it myself, but just like with the brakes / lines, I think I will pay a mechanic to double check my work!

That is...if I can figure out how to remove the assembly haha.

Well the good news is I was able to remove the emergency brake fairly easily after studying how it is assembled for a minute. For my future self and others I will explain that you basically remove the nuts on the right hand side, then simply push the bolt/pin they were attached to up until you can pull the brake off. On the left side there is a pin the screws in you'll have to remove with a flat head. Here's a picture as I pulled the pin/bolt out.

And as you can see, there was a very obvious reason the patrol was not staying put on an incline haha...

I've managed to have two eBrakes relined at our local shop. Well they actually sent it away to a workshop somewhere in Australia. Cost was $130 AUD. You also could just buy the liner.
Not sure if I will get there.
Not sure if I will get back.
