Just wondering if someone can tell me where this fits in on the handbrake equalizer mechanism?

The parts book only give a very vague indication as the basic location and I cannot tell exactly where it fits. At least it is not obvious to me :)

I had one on my '41 but don't remember exactly where it goes. I googled '41-48 e-brakes
and everyone lists the rubber but one one says exactly where it goes. good luck

I had the same issue - have/had one but never could tell where it went.
Sorry

I figured as much but it is not immediately clear exactly where and/or how it fits... Maybe I'm just dumb :D

I know we like to say around here that Henry wouldn't have put it on there if it didn't need it, but I've never had one and somehow my handbrakes still work...

This rubber thingy is shown on page 24 of the parts green book, and listed as P/N 11A-2091-A, Washer (hand brake equalizer clevis) - rubber. It goes on the brake cable before the adjusting clevis is screwed on. According to the '39 - 48 service manual, it look like it fits over the turn buckle, adjusted to the vertical position, and possibly acts a a bumper to stop the equalizer assembly from hitting the floor pan when the cable is slack and driving on a bumpy road? That is my best idea of its purpose, and I don't have one on my '46 Coupe either.

Thanks for the clarification, at least now I know :D. Whether or not I will fit it is yet to be decided.
