Rear brakes are shot, need help with the cables please

So i had seized calipers and drove around for a while with them and no ebrake. i go to put the new calipers on today and alot of the stuff was severely rusted, probably from nj weather and being heated and cooled from the seized calipers. this one pin has been giving me hell.(i think its called a clevis pin??) on one side its visable but wont budge and im not sure how to remove it, on the other side its completely worn down and rusted over. so before i replace the cables is there a way to salvage them by maybe drilling the old pins out and replaceing them? where can i even find this "clevis" pin? i was thinking junkyard but i dont know how to remove it so that doesnt help.lol

Help me out guys, thanks

Hey bro what's going on ? i see you have some issues with the rear brakes hardware ,why not buy them new ,because from the junk yard its almost impossible for a good stuff especially for brakes ,if the emergency cable is shot try ebay or craiglist ,or buy them new. The clevis pin your talking is part of the brake hardware it could probably be same as the accord ,More info needed

Re: Rear brakes are shot, need help with the cables please

id try autozone. im just guessing, but its probably one of those universal parts. heres a link to a clevis pin
Clevis pin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
if its the same thing, id take out the cotter pin on the one side and just try to tap it out with a hammer. i am hoping this is what youre talking about

Re: Rear brakes are shot, need help with the cables please

Hey bro i wasn't trying to increase my posting count .The way to get the pin out is using hand held torch and some wd 40 spray and a good set of vise grip ,holding the clevis with the vise grip and griping the pin with another or good pliers ,make sure to use the torch carefully paying attention ,not to burn up the cable ,also a wire brush would work after you heat up the part and spray wd-40 ,try working the part out as you heat . Make sure you have some water when using the torch you can a water bottle or windex spray bottle with water in it .Later .

Clevis pin in a caliper? Do you mean slider pin? I've never heard that term before.
