Ray,

It appears on the photo that your driver's side primary shoe retracting spring is rubbing the wheel cyl dust boot. It needs to be flipped or may be the wrong spring. It should clear the wheel cylinder as shown on the pass side.

These are the PN's I think will work. They are from a 1961 to 1964 GALAXIE w/ self adjusters.

C0MM 2036-A Primary Shoe Retracting Spring 2 15/16" L
C0MM 2035-A Secondary Shoe Retracting Spring 4 19/32" L
C1SS 2049-A Brake Adjusting Screw Spring 3/4" D 3 1/8"L

I was going to PM you with illustrations but they are in my photo album with no jpg.

Please make sure they are fully operational before road test.

Looks like this is where you can find them. Just make sure they are quality parts and not CHI-COM-

Default Need picture of self adjusters installed on drum brakes

I just spoke with my buddy who put my self adjusters on for me. He said that you need to find a left and right adjuster set for a Ford car that has the same drum size as our Tbirds. In this case, I think our drum size is 11", but someone who knows for sure needs to confirm that. Gary suggested a 61/63 Tbird, but it could be a big Ford with the same drum size. I think we got ours from Autozone, and one of their guys there worked with him to find the right set for my Tbird. The left and right kit he got had all the springs in it for each side needed to put the adjusters on. As for getting a spoon in there to adjust them after they are on, after the initial adjusting, neither he nor I have adjusted them since.

You guys are awesome! I really appreciate all the help. This is what makes this forum so great. I'm replying using my phone so please excuse my short answers. I'll see if I can find the spring kits at the autoparts store on my way home from work today. Thanks again!

My buddy said that the self adjusting kits he bought had all the parts you need to do the job, including all the right springs. It was similar to what you bought, but included the springs. Good luck.

OK, so I think have a solution. I just got back from Autozone and I ordered the complete spring kit for $8.99

Part# H7107


I could have just purchased the adjuster springs by themselves for $4.99, but they did not have any in stock at their local warehouse.

Part# H412


Here’s a pic of the spring that’s normally supposed to pull the bottom shoes together on squarebirds. There’s a big difference in the length of the “hooks” on the ends.


Once I pick up the new kits tomorrow, I’ll take a pic of both springs side by side for comparison purposes.

We’ll see how everything fits this weekend. Hopefully we don’t get rain.
