A real parking brake

. .The cable was run over the top on this one.  The Cleveland parking brake works just the opposite of the Grumman version.  As a result, I could run the cable along the avionics tray and down to the valve.  The mounting bracket is simpler too.

This is the first conversion.  It was quite simple.  This uses the same parking valve that the '78 and later uses.
This one uses a Cleveland (i.e., EXPENSIVE) parking brake.  The cable comes over the top.
Two more pics of the installation.
