    Hey guys, I've got a 1968 Model C-50, and I'm having difficulty finding a supplier for parking brake shoes. I went to my local truck store, and they said that they could re-line shoes for me, but they cannot find the shoes for my truck. I have the backing plate, the drum, and the hand-lever, but I can't find the guts for sale anywhere.

    I'm at the point of fabricating something and welding-in a homemade crank to push a shoe, but I can't even find a shoe that is even close to the right drum diameter. If somebody knows the part number for this shoe, that'd be a great start.
