1961 Rear Drum HELP!!

Post by Evanstbird » Wed Oct 10, 2018 4:24 pm

Hello all. I picked up a 61 and went to redo the rear brakes and discovered that it's missing the brake strut and parking brake lever on the driver side.
Anyone willing to part with theirs?

Many thanks,
Evan

Have you check if anything else is missing?...Do you have the 1961 Shop Manual?

G'day,
Have you tried the vendors? Pat Wilson should have some of them.

Yes sir. I've gone through everything and the brakes work now minus the lever and strut. I do have the manual and I've rebuilt quite a few sets of drums over the years.

Thanks for your comment

Thanks Karl,
I just checked Pat Wilson's site and no luck. Thanks for the resource.
