Anyone know what this part is?

Post by Dansbirds » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:44 am

So I had the rear drum off on my 70 to replace a wheel stud, this piece was jammed in the bottom of the shoes and adjuster. It’s obviously bent so original shape could be anything. Any ideas?

Just a couple guesses maybe part of the self adjusting brake mechanism or the emergency brake?

Self adjuster is intact, I’m dreading pulling the other side to see if i see it on the left, this car has 275/60’s with cragar ss unilugs so they are a bear to mount up.
