Just a reminder. Just cause you ordered the correct part, don't assume you got the right one!! Went to Oreilly and got what I thought were rear brake shoes for a 65 custom. Put them on and replaced wheels. Wheels would not move after tightening lug nuts. YUP!! I put front shoes on the back. I was wondering why the little retainer pin springs were so tight. They were too wide and drum contacted shoes when lugs were tightened. Lesson learned!!

One thing that you should always do on a repair/replace jobs is to compare the old part to the new one before installing it to be sure that it is correct. Of course if you don't have the old part to compare the new one to, it makes it kind of hard.
