Anti-Rattle Spring

How important is it? Mine is busted. Side note:

Once again I have to go to the '62 manual for my '64. (I have to use the '65 charts for wiring!) I'm seriously beginning to think my car is schizophrenic.

Hey Sarg!

What do you mean by anti rattle spring? Got a picture or can you tell us where the spring is? BTW, Thank you for your service. My dad & uncle were WWII Marines, I was an all service reject.....dad must have left quite an impression....

I'm wondering if I even need the bar. It looks like it's just keeping the parking brake lever from moving. The "64 supplement manual doesn't show it.

I would say yes you need them, the bar is what makes the E-brake work.

The bar is the spreader for applying the parking brake, the springs keep it from rattling, it will work without the spring. I have a box of drum brake parts, I will check to see if there are any in it. How many do you need?

Sorry I did not have any in the parts box. New ones are available from inline tube for $3 each or used from any 9 1/2" drum brake GM car or truck.

Link to the new one

what a PITA! it never fails, you hang onto something for years never needing it, then you throw it away and instantly ya need it...

just a couple weeks ago i tossed a few sets of backing plate assemblies in the scrap pile... they're gone. thought i had saved all the small brake components first, obviously not

Sorry! I haven't a cup yet either and it's 10 am here! What I really should do is install the disc conversion kit I have that's been sitting in my garage for over a year. Can I do all four and not install the master cylinder?
