Default Slack adjuster part numbers

Does anyone happen to have these at the ready? This is for my old PT, not sure how they changed over the years, but it seems like not much in the 80's. It's pouring rain outside so I figured I would ask before I take them off and try to figure it out. I developed a pull to the right under braking on the way back from WOG and the adjuster on the left side won't hold adjustment and the pawl is hammered. Instead of upgrading to the spring loaded pawl I just want to replace them both. I haven't checked the rears yet, but I'll take those part numbers, too!

BTW air brake stuff should be a topic for a WOG seminar next year. It's really simple stuff, but I think people should know how to at least check adjustment and verify they are working.

Has yours been updated to automatic adjusting slacks or still the manuals.

All are autos and the fronts look just like the ones in this guide:

I wasn't able to get a good look at the ones on the drive axle, but they look like a complete PITA to replace. Tags look easy.

Hi Andy,
Once you get the part number, try upgrading to the Gunite model... it is much, much easier to back off than the older "pawl-style" adjusters on the drive axle. There is a cross-refrence at the end of this brochure-

I am changing out my slacks and cans one axle at a time. I did the Tag last month and today I got after the drives. The drives on my Bus are hard to do as you have to pull the s-cam out a bit because the diff is in the way. That means wheels off and brake shoes off. What I found so far is that the Tag cams are fine spline (28) but the drives are coarse spline (10). All 1.5 inch dia shaft. Seems they could have picked one but that would have made it too easy!

I am going to the Bendix ones as I can get 3/4 inch clevis's for them and the new cans on the drives (3636) have a 3/4 inch rod. The Bendix ones adjust easily as well if you ever need to back them off.

Notes:
Make sure you use clevis's from the same manufacturer as the slacks as the hole spacing is different between manufacturers.
My drives have offset clevis's
Check the length of your slacks. Both 5.5 and 6 inch are the standards and braking force will be affected if you change the length. (That could be a good thing but you need to know what you are getting into)
Each axle will likely be different so don't just check one and then order 6 new ones!
