brake drum retainers F-579
#1
I have an AMK Chassis Fastener Kit, 1971-73 Mustang/Cougar Disc Brake 302/351

with F-579
6 pc. BRAKE DRUM RETAINERS
(GREEN PUSH ON RETAINERS)


and I can not find them in 1971 Mustang Part and Body Illustrations for my 71 front disc

who knows where and if they (6 pieces) are to be pushed on ?

thank you
Wolfgang

They go on three of the wheel lug bolts on each side of the rear after the brake drums are put on. They are usually left off after the first brake job. They keep new brake drums from falling off before the wheels are put on.

Edit: They work fine with stock wheels, but may cause problems with some aftermarket wheels.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Mostly when drum brakes are serviced these are discarded. They are of no real value in daily operation of the vehicle.

Where are these parts located in the blow-out illustration? Or...what number in the illustration are these parts? Just curious...

Let me check your shorts!

Some of my cars I gathered way back in the late 80's still had them. Usually only one on each drum (back only). No need for them on the front.

midlife, I have not seen these clips illustrated in any Ford Shop Manuals or the MPC. They may be shown in some non Ford published manuals but I don't have any to look at and verify. They are listed after the brake drum applications in the text section of the Ford MPC. Ford part #356080-S32     Smile

Just like the copper gaskets under the retainer nuts on the 9" pumpkin, you learn to leave them off after the first time you make the mistake of using them... Big Grin
