I went to use my EBrake (on the tranny) the other day when leaving Willie idling and it was a real pain. It was difficult to pull out and again to twist to return. Additionally, it's hard to reach under there to find and manipulate. First I think I need it to take it down and try lubing the shaft. What should I use? Does the cable need lubing? With what? But, it seems to me that it is not much of an 'emergency' brake as a 'parking' brake, and pretty limited at that too. Not sure it would help much if needed because you lost your brakes.
