Threading brake cable through pft fork hack

Tools needed:
New brake housing and cable
Flashlight
5 inch straw cut lengthwise in a u shape

Seperate the cable from the housing if this isn't already done. Start by sliding the break cable though the stems pots mod bolt. Stick your finger or something into the bottom of the center fork hole (near the break mount hole)  to help guide the cable through the fork leg. Using a flashlight stare into the break cable guide port. (The little hole the cable goes through in the back of the forks). Slowly move the cable until you can see it though the hole. Then grab your straw and stick it into the hole using it to guide the cable out the port.
After this is accomplished slide your housing over the cable from the bottom up. If it stops mid way it probably needs help going though the bottom of the pots mod.

I'm sure there are many ways to do this. This is just one way that works for me.

I have never had any luck doing it that way especially on β€˜87-β€˜89 PFT forks. The easiest way for me is do go from the forks up. Glad it worked for you. Here is how I do it.
