Just encourage him to help someone else when he gets the chance.
Will do..,he definitely will do.
Got it. Spring was missing, but it shouldn't be hard to find a suitable sub at a decent hardware store. Will be in express mail tomorrow. Will send USPS tracking info then.
Sorry it took so long. There were two screws holding the drum to the hub hidden under 70 years of grease and grime. Neither the Master Parts Book nor the Maintenance Manual made reference to the screws.
This is Jeff...
What spring is it that your referring to that is missing?
Missing spring is shown on the picture you originally posted, with your red line running right through the middle of the spring, to the right near end of the missing piece.
It is also shown as item 4.6725 in this drawing I posted. Its purpose is to keep your new part (4.6575) from rattling.
Hi Bill, it's Jeff. I didn't have a spring on the other side so I never realized there needed to be one. I guess I'm tearing apart that side again and getting 2 springs. I just want to thank you for all you have done. I really appreciate it and will definitely pass it forward to anyone that needs help.
Need? Probably not. But these old trucks have enough rattles without us helping by leaving parts out.

Look closely at the picture of the part, near the spring. You will see an "8". I'll bet you the one he already has is stamped "7".
I looked through my selection of springs and found a perfect one, EXCEPT is was twice as long as need be. Cut it in half, put one spring where it should be (see picture) and then threaded the other one (for your missing spring, not shown in picture) through the eye of the cotter pin.
Thanks, so much Bill!!
Jeff put a check out in the mail today to you.
Take care & be safe.
