Try this again. I am in need of just the two activation levers for small drum Bennett outside brakes. Mine were both cut off at about the upper 2 inches or so. I am exploring a couple of other options but want to check here first. My next choices would be weld on extensions or have 2 cut and bend to shape out of flat stock.
Thank you Dan also Allan for suggestions.

Chaffin's sold complete reproduction sets of Bennett brakes. It may be worth contacting them to see if they have odd components left over.

Hope this helps.

I have one in cast brass, somewhere!!!! the hole for the clevis pin is rather worn if I remember correctly. Can't remember which side it is, or where it is, but if you get stuck, I'll keep an eye out for it. The guys at Antique Auto Ranch in Spokane had it when I visited them in 2010.

I can supply you with two arms for AC brakes if you are unsuccessful finding Bennett arms. They are very similar and are ductile iron castings. They use 5/16" diameter clevis pins. dmcgearsatyahoodotcom or PM works also.
