I’m trying to install sn95 style e-brake cables into my 85 fox but they keep popping off when I tighten or the lift the handle. I already loosened the bracket as much as possible . What could be the problem?

Where does it pop off from? The calipers or the handle? Are they the right length cables?

It pops off at the handle ..I bought the complete kit so they should be the right ones, the cables say they are for a 79 to 92 foxbody. Everything else bolted right up

Is there too much slack? Have you tried adjusting the nut by the handle?

So I just installed my disk e brake lines too and I had to mess with the nut to adjust the lines. I tightened the nut on the handle until the cables fully lock around half way when you pull the handle. And don’t forget the e clip at the end near the caliper.

EDIT: Mines a 86 so it should be identical.
