Yes, they are the same ones as the Turbo Coupe.

Working on finishing my swap up ....... five years later...

My buddy cut the drum ebrake cables when we put the 98 mustang axle in, sounds like I just swap in T-coupe cables from my new calipers to the intermediate cable connector?

I found a couple t-coupe rear cables on ebay, but am curious if the sub $20 ones off rock auto will also work?

I used all the cables off an '87 TC on my '83 when I went to disc brakes back in '98.  I also had to rob the mechanism off the TC that splits them.  Eric has a write up over on Cool Cats here:

Someone else may be able to chime in, but I recall the Mark VII cables working for this application. I'm fairly sure they use the same style front half of the system as the non-TC birds, so they should be a direct swap.

It's Gumby's fault.

Wanted to post up the diagrams for the 83-85 parking brake system with drum brakes and the 86-88 parking brake system with drum brakes.  Might help someone later down the road.
