Are the brake adjusters removable from the backing plates?. I just spent 3 hours sandblasting one clean. I then broke the adjuster free and sure enough it broke . The spring washer under the head was cracked and when I rotated the bolt head it just spun right out from underneath. Now there is all kinds of play in the darn thing. I have examined in closely and can't tell, but it looks like it is sort of riveted on at the factory. If in fact it is not easily fixable, does anyone have a set of late style backing plates they want to part with?
