P30 Parking Brake Actuator

I used Jerry Peck's instructions to remove the hydraulics and put the electric actuator on. His instructions and photos were great! I could not find the 1/2 in. threaded rod or the coupler for it. I made my own linkage by using flat metal and a rod with the original threaded end. I used a toilet hold down bolt for the rod to push in the "brake set" lights. For some reason, my brake will set with the shifter in a drive gear with the key turned off. The indicator lights work normally. That is what I wanted.
