Unhappy BRAKE HARWARE, CAN ANYBODY HELP ME??

Hey, guy's:
The saga of my 60 Starliner continues! I've managed to lose half of the hardware for the rear drum brakes. Everything is done on the back half of the car, with the exception of the rear brakes ( 2 1/2" X 11" shoes), I need the adjusters (not the self adjuster style), the lower springs that pass over the top of the adjusters, and the long spring that ties the front, and rear shoes together that passes under the wheel cylinder. If anybody has these items in their junk piles, I would be very happy to buy them, please let me know what you've got. I tried searching for these items at Napa, Advanced, O'Reilly, Carquest, etc. no luck - if it was for a Chebby, I'd have my choice of colors!

Realistically, unless you're doing a concourse perfect restoration, there's a lot of interchangeability in the springs and adjusters that will work. Most any 9" with 2 1/2" x 11" drum brakes should work (and that's a pretty common size). Experiment a little, it's more forgiving that you might think.

My thoughts exactly.

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!
