Well, I'll have to side with the parts places. What's an anchor pin guide? The anchor pin just goes through the hole, through the shoe, and then gets a spring will the little washer do-hickies on each end of the spring ... no guides.

The spring and washer do-hickies are included in a "brake hardware kit".

If you're talking about the plate that goes on the top pin for the springs, Mustangs Unlimited has them for about $2.00 each (MU part #T2028). I got them in a kit for my 66, the parts are listed for 65-73 with 9" drums. When I got them, they wouldn't fit over the anchor pin so I guess I didn't need them and I didn't use them.

If you're talking about the "winged washer" seen on the anchor pin in shop manuals, forget it. Not required. These were eliminated in early production since they caused problems.

my '68 Shop Manual shows no such thing for 9 or 10 inch brakes.
