Has anyone got some good photos of a Cadillac drum. A bit like this, but with more detail:

I'm trying to figure out how they goes back together. The springs and levers and stuff. Unfortunately that's the only photo I have before the brake shop disassembled it (silly me I thought they'd re-assemble them before giving it back... but no).

Posted Image Brake drum shoe mounting and configuration haven't really changed for decades. I attached a photo of a page from my 1968 shop manual which should help.
On a related note, I guess you won't be going back to that brake shop. What brake shop calls itself a brake shop if they cannot re-assemble brake drum mechanisms?

I think I've got it figured out now.

FYI the spring kit from USA Parts Supply comes with 2 silver and 2 yellow hold-down springs. I've got no idea which one's which, so I used the yellow spring on the brake adjuster side.
