What is the part number for the the 10" rear drum brakes wheel cylinder link pins (forked pins that stick out of the sides of the wheel cylinders)? I need to replace them and I can't find the part number. It looks similar to this:

It is referred to as a parking brake strut, you'll find one at Rockauto under your vehicle listing.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I thought he was asking about the little pins that extend from the ends of the cylinder.

You clicked it wrong. It takes me to some pins at Advance. But I there's just a useless Wearever part number that I haven't cross-referenced yet.

It should be Wearever Drum Brake Wheel Cylinder Link Pin (part #1414-2A). A reviewer says that it works with 1968 Mustang 10" rear drum brakes, but I don't know if those are similar to Ranger 10" drum brakes.

get outta my way, I'm falling!
the Q & A at Advance says it does not fit a 2004 Ranger with 10" brakes.
so we still don't know for sure.
