What Years Will Work?

I had an accident with my 65 Impala last Fall.I just got everything fixed and right now I am re assembling the whole brake assembly on the passenger side.Well I needed to put a new wheel cylinder in(On my drums brakes)and I noticed that I dont have the pins that go in each side of the wheel cylinder and connect to the brake shoe.I am not sure exactly what these parts are called but I hope someone understands what I am saying.I called every parts store in my area and have searched online and no one sells these pins.I bought a couple brake kits and the kits came with everything but the cylinder pins.So I was going to go to the junk yard and pull some off another car.What year cars would have these pins in the right size that I need?Thanks,

I wouldn't say for sure but maybe any comparable size car may have them . Just make sure they have the same size brake 9 inch or 10 and so on . Take the match from the other side . I can't think of the name either but i bet they where the same on all comparitable brake systems.

'65-'70 Chevy big cars use the same basic front suspension, so that's what I'd look for first, but like he said, yank one from the other side and take it with you just to be sure. Might be somebody here that's done a disc brake swap and might have some leftovers.
