1990 1/2 Bounder parking brake??

Hey guys,

I know this is gonna sound crazy but I have been all over the drivers area under the dash, around the seat, etc, but cannot find the so called parking brake described in the original owners manual. It says it is on the floor next to the drivers seat, but it just ain't there
Its the Ford F53 chassis 460cid..... can anyone help??
Also has there been a problem with the gearlinkage or column shifting.
Mine doesnt seem to want to go back into park after driving around a bit.
Any ideas there too...(Im thinking a bent link between column and transmission somewhere, but thought I would ask anyway...

Thanks so much
Steve

It's not a foot pedal. I have a 90 1/2 Bounder. It's a hand brake, just to the left of your left leg.

Sounds like you have a push an pull knob that is at the bottom of the dash on the left hand side,, If it is not pulled out all the way the it wont go in gear good,,,, Look under your MH at the back of the trans an see if you have like a big round looking thing an ya driveshaft going thru it to the trans,,,
