hardware question
« on: January 08, 2012, 12:30:40 AM »
Is there any "rule of thumb" to follow when buying hardware especially the more or less invisible kind? The first things I find I need are the 3892755 speednuts that hold the forward rear spring mounts in place. For something like that I wouldnt want to reuse original and care more for a quality product then a dead on original part.

I came up with some brake parts while rooting through my stuff. 5463565L & 5463566R brake backing plates and a 5460348 brake master cylinder and Delco Moraine power booster. Where would I look to see what these came off of? They look like someone reconditioned them. I am thinking they have to be Chevelle or A body parts.

thanks

To answer your first question about the 3892755 J-nuts, read this from another thread;

Don't replace the clip nuts with anything but the "CIP" branded ones. AMK sell them.
OER packaged clip nuts are rubbish.

This an old thread but I need an answer on the backing plates. Are these 5463565L & 5463566R brake backing plates correct parts for '69 Disk set up.

Daniel, I don't think so! My 67-69 book states the original part # was 5463496 & 5463497 (two piece rotors). I believe the 5463565 & 5463566 were later designs used on other cars like Chevelles with a one piece rotor.

Thanks a lot Chick. I can't find my books since I moved everything from the shop back home when we finished my car.
