WTB Brake Spring, Strut to Brake Shoe

LiftdT4R

Hey, what's up? I was doing the brakes on my Scout, and I noticed that the Strut to Brake Shoe Spring, #10 in the 1978 Service manual was rusted away. Its a rectangular spring that connects the parking brake lever to the brake shoe.

Anyway, I was wondering if thats something that NAPA would carry(didnt see it on their website), or something that most auto parts stores might have. I really didnt want to pay $7 is shipping and wait weeks to get it off the internet. Thanks,

you should go into the napa store and ask them

I tried the other day, but we couldnt find it in the catalog. On their website it also isnt included in any of the spring kits for a Scout. I was wondering if maybe they used the same spring on another truck, or if maybe its just a generic spring that I could get easy somewhere else.

I feel sure your local NAPA will have it. You may need to get it in some kind of hardware kit. If I'm not mistaken it is the same as a F100/150. If they don't have it listed as IH Scout.

Cool thanks, I'm gonna head back there today, sometimes if you get a different guy there a little more willing to help. I didnt see that spring listed on NAPA for any of the other trucks/cars listed on the parts america site.

JIC anyone was wondering, NAPA definately doesn't sell these springs, looked up kits for a few different trucks with the D44 with drums none of them have them. PepBoys and Vato-Zone don't either. And NAPA has discontinued their generic parking brake springs. Lightline has a few left that are NOS, for $1 a pice, but they want like $10 to ship and itll take a week. (I thought putting on new shoes would be a one day thing) I'm going to hit the junk yard tomorrow and see if I can snag a couple off an older Ford.

... Lightline has a few left that are NOS, for $1 a pice, but they want like $10 to ship and itll take a week...
---I've never waited a week to get parts from SSS and to make shipping nicer, I've ordered a hat, coaster set, matchbooks, matchbox cars, etc., to ship along with the part(s) I needed.

---If you still want to go the route of finding it locally, the full kit will have the Parking Brake Strut Anti-Rattle Spring in it. I bought one not long ago from NAPA... was Balkamp and I should still have the box out inm the shed holding "still in excellent condition small brake parts". I'll remember to grab a part number for you... should be availible still and if one part is bad, might as well change them all and use the box for "still in x condition small brake parts" or something.

When practicable, buy your brake parts at a brake supply house. They know hat you need and they have the parts. Vanco advertises on this site.

I grabbed one out of an 80s f150 at the local salvage yard, so I don't need one anymore, but I was kind of suprised to not have found one at NAPA, or the other auto shops, that back drum brake is pretty common among a lot of trucks. And I'm sure someone has had that spring break before.

Thanks for the info, I'm kind of partial to Lightline, theyve helped me out alot so far, but I might check out Super Scout in the future for small stuff.

I looked through a few of the full brake kits with the guy at NAPA and none of them had that spring in there, they had basically every other part you could think of, but not the squarish spring that connects the strut to the shoe. If you have the P/N I'd love to check it out though.

Doc, I'm in NJ, and there really isnt that much in the way of speciality auto stores out here. It's mainly all Yuppies where I live, and they take their beemers and benzes to shops, hardly anybody works on their own stuff around here. Do you have a name of any of the brake places by chance? If there close the shipping might be a lot quicker.

SuperScoutSpecialists IS the LightLine. The keeper of the flame, where all the LL dealers get their LL parts, the reason the NOS parts didn't go in the scrap bin once IH had fulfilled the gov't parts availability requirement.

-QFT,

---Back when the Holley External (AKA Gold Box) module was discontinued by Dana, I had mentioned it on the old board and John G. over at SSS got on the horn and about two weeks later it was back in production. FWIW, they're not only our fellow IH Blood-Brothers, but they are also related to the big boys at Navistar/International. My all-time favorite to deal with, but I still try to give the rest business when I can.

---I'm not so sure that the Parking Brake Strut is the same between the IH and Ford or any* year. An illustrated (with dimensions) paper catalog from a brake component company like Bendix would prove what Eric VanBuren and I believe to be true. I would most certainly research this before I went mounting it on the vehicle. Remember, IH had their own coal and steel interests, so they made most of their parts themselves. The brake drums for our Scouts are a fine example... specific to IH 1/2 Ton only. Can't see why it'd be any different when it came to the Parking Brake Strut, especially when nearly all the rest of the individual brake hardware components carry a different part number. Now, the caliper hold downs might be the same style, but I would suspect they are different in length seeing how there are three lengths that I know of on the rack at my local Discount/Westwood Auto Parts.

---Sorry, I was out in the building for near two hours digging weaving in and out of the make-shift rows/isles I have in my building and couldn't spot the clear plastic box with red writing that said Balkamp. So, I have failed in my quest to get you a part number for the axle kit.

---Oh yeah, and for the sake of argument... more toward preventing one in the future, please don't post "WTB" in the tech forums. There are classifieds here for that and when found the post you created can (and often times will) be deleted... regardless of how crucial the information in the responses are.

---I believe it was allowed to remain here because you never asked to buy one in the post itself, but not even the Title should hint sale or request thereof.

---Again, I'd check the details on that part before you installed it. It would bite to have something come loose or get wedged because it was the wrong size. Those drums are $100 a piece if not more by now.
