Title: Rear brake shoe retainer springs
Post by: Cleprechaun on July 21, 2020, 10:23:07 PM
Backed my HT out of the shed and it kept on going, NO BRAKES AT ALL. I was nearly across the street before I pulled the parking brake. Anyway, I replaced the left rear wheel cylinder with the NAPA one, but I also had a broken return spring that had been just a tad shorter than the originals, probably why it snapped. I tried putting in an old used original and it snapped during installation, but I took a picture of it first (bellow). I have seen all the recent posts And comments here, but I have not seen a source for new springs yet. Anyone have any luck yet?
