Hey Everyone,
I got a quick question -- What is the technical name for the spring that connects the front drum pads together. I have all of the retaining springs and cable, but that one long spring that runs from one pad to the other within the drum. Once I know the name, I also need to find one for my '67 Fastback. It's been pulling to the left since I got it and I think this is the reason why.
Thanks for the help.

Those springs are typically not sold seperately. You'll have to buy a kit. Fear not the kit is relatively cheap and the springs should be changed with each brake job.

As far as pulling, I don't think that's the problem. Is it pulling all the time or only when you put the brakes on? Check tire inflation, alignment , tire condition ect.. It could be a lot of things. get back with more info.

I can't speak to the pulling problem, but I can tell you that you will not get that spring
in any spring rebuild kit. I just went through all this and finally had to order a set from a
specialty obsolete parts house. I posted the details of where I found them recently in this
forum. I'll see if I can locate the posting and add a link to this thread...

I am parting out a '67 coupe. I haven't removed the wheels or brakes yet, but if you don't find a source for the spring or want mine, I'll pull it and send it to you for the shipping cost.
