Default Re: 31 brake camshaft

If I am interpreting this piece correctly, it is the piece coming out of the rear backing plate that the brake arm fastens to? If that is the piece, then the original ones that I have are flat. They may show a machining mark in the center. They go on cad plated, with black arms for the service brake and both cad plated shaft and arm on the emergency brake. (for a 31)
