    Is it possible to have self adjusting front drum brakes on my 68 GTS?

    Do believe it is. Are you asking because one side repeatedly requires loosening some every so often??

    Why aren't yours self adjusting- that's the way they came? Maybe we need pictures.

    I am restoring a 68 GTS H code, front brakes are questionable , passenger side had 10 inch drum had the self adjusting hardware minus the cable, the drivers side was missing a drum but also had the hardware minus the cable , the hubs on three wheels are small bolt pattern 7/16 lug studs while the drivers side front hub was 1/2 x 20 studs so I'm trying to determine what is correct for this car.

    smaller studs would be original.

      I see you have multiple small problems but you should be able to sort it out easily. Cables should be available in a hardware kit. Original 7/16" L&R are hard to find. If you want original, I find it easier to rob them from another car.
