Good to see you back! I believe that I still have all the mechanical brake parts off my '38 if that would work. Maybe a photo of what you are looking for would help.

Mike, can you post a picture of what you are calling plungers? I can't open the link you posted above.

Mike this is what is used in my '38 brakes. Its about 2.04" total length, 1.625" from the pointed end to the bottom of the head, .432" dia. and about .490" dia. at the raised band. What do you need them for?

Mine are part number 78-2042 that are used on '37/'38 pass and 1/2T pickups. I wonder of yours are big truck parts.

They're adjustment wedges as the brake shoes are pushed outward at the bottom, not at the top. Those pictured aren't any of the four different versions used between the Model A era and '38s on passenger car/commercial vehicle brakes.

oops, no, not the one in your pic. My 37 is a regular Fordor passenger car.
All, please disregard my post. I should have requested this in the "parts wanted" section anyway.
