Another request to the list that knows, please...
I'm trying to replace the brake cylinder on the left rear (drums) of my 66
Sprite.  I have it all apart with shoes, springs all free. I see no
obvious clip on the back of the old cylinder, just a very slight raised
edge, not close to the thickness of the new spring clip. Fluid line
already free, bleeder removed.  I can make the cylinder rock slightly, but
can't get it out. BTW, do I remember past threads about an easier method
than the spring clip thingy to hold the new one in?
I've had my head stuffed in the wheel well long enough!
