    jcameronh, WELCOME to the VFF!!

    On the stock pistons there is a clip inside the piston that holds the wrist pin, but not knowing what you have, it is hard to tell.

    Pictures would be of great help. Top, bottom, side to side would really be a help.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      If you have the original center clip, then support the piston area just outside the wrist pin and press the pin down and out.
      To reinstall it you need a tapered guide pin to expand the ring so the wrist pin enters it. It is a bullet shaped guide pin.

          The kingpin locking pin is grooved. Should the grooved side be oriented in some particular way?

          Does it matter the orientation of the smooth side of the wedge pin?

          Flywheel hosing cotter pin.
          by Tacoma Bob
          Is there a specific size ( or part number) for the cotter pin or is it simply a big honkin cotter pin.
          A Friend is assembling a Canadian built 30 coupe and asked me. I told him I would check here. Personally I just use a big honkin cotter pin. Thanks, TB

          Wrist pin bushings
          by Chuck Sea/Tac
          I’m just short of 40,000 miles, and I’m tightening the bearings, new rings, because I overheated badly this spring. Wasn’t burning oil. Very little wear in cylinders, no ridge ect. The wrist pins have no precivable movement. My question is how long do wrist pin bushings last. I don’t know of any wore out engines I’ve pulled apart where they were rattling. I use diesel oil with zinc. Which...

          King pin locking bolt installation - HELP!
          by wayne1230cars
          I had to do some work on the brake actuator arms which involved removing the king pin locking bolts. They were a little stubborn but I got them out. They were somewhat beat up so I bought new pins. I installed a new one on the right side lining it up with the king pin slot. It went in ok but not quite all the way flush to the axle. It sits out about .130 inches. The old one was not flush either but...

          Final Word on Flathead Ted Roller Front Pin Installation
          by Oldgearz
          A little while back I asked for help on how to install Flathead Ted deluxe roller pins on front shoes. I was referred to Synder's A-2051-DLX Brake Floaters kit instructions which say "INSTALL THE NEW ROLLER/PIN COMBINATION WITH THE PIN POINTING TOWARD THE BACKING PLATE. INSTALL THE COTTER PIN ON BACK OF SHOE". These instructions are WRONG. Flathead Ted verified to me that in the DELUXE...
