73 Grande will undergo three phase build process. Phase 1 is to make roadworthy. Phase 2 is interior/exterior restoration. Phase 3 is ++ performance.
Second post of small things I need to get closer to a complete Phase 1 on my Mustang. Rebuilding my rear brakes I noticed I was missing a very small part that I could not locate at a auto parts store. I know I could buy them from CJ, but I was hoping to get one from someone who has many spares. It’s this:

Poured out my bag of extra brake parts, but don't see those. Tell me where they go.

It goes between the brake shoe and the parking brake link; it supports that oval spring that fits there. I believe Ford didn’t start putting those spring seats in until the 1971 car. 1967/68 Mustangs looks very similar, but are missing that metal spring backer.

You want to clip that holds the spring for the rear brake equalizer bar for your emergency brake assembly. It can almost work without it. You want it as a spacer to make the spring tighter. While you are at it, you may want to replace the clip that holds the e brake assy on. I used a E clip. I didn't trust re-using the original

Yea, I got a rear brake kit that came with every piece you could ever imagine to change except that part. I mean every spring, clip, cable, etc. Weird. I know I can run without it, but I don’t want to.
