I put a new e-brake kit into my rear end (1972 Nova 8.5" 10 bolt), and I realized I am missing a part on the right side. It is a small spring retainer that goes through the adjuster and one of the pads. My local Chevrolet dealer said the part was discontinued, but I know there is some company making them somewhere. Any help is greatly appreciated!

an 8.5 10 bolt is a not an uncommon rear. Hell, i see them still used in jeeps. I would say try google first, but there are tons of junkyards who sell old parts.

did you try cross referencing it with another car?

Yeah, its a pretty common rear end. Its actually going in my 1968 Pontiac Firebird, and is a direct replacement. I tried to google it, but I can't even find the name of the part. It is like a spring retainer, but more... Here is a picture of it from the bottom:

I'm sending it to my parts guy. I'll let you know soon
Thanks for the effort man! I went to Kragen (or whatever it's called now), and they had a full rebuild kit for under $4, so I got it. I am still curious as to what the part is called tho.
