This looks pretty difficult to do so looks like I need to go to a garage

I looked everywhere for instructions like these but ended up watching a YouTube video by Scotty Kilmer about five times before I did em. Easier than I thought. Thank You for this!

Re: DIY: Replace Rear Brake Pads - Per The Manual (1st Gen)

I ordered some brake shoes from NAPA today, tore into the ol rusty drums, took everything out.

Then I noticed the new front shoes don't have the pin that the 'Automatic Adjuster Lever' swivels on (you can see it in Step 8 of disassembly). Anybody else ever run into this problem? Or know what I could do?

There's no way to get the thing to stay, and I can't pull the pin off of the old shoe because it's peened in there. This blows, cause now I have to borrow a car to get to the damn store again.
