A lot of people are on their way to the convention.....Is the "pin" you're talking about the anchor at the top that the top of the shoes fit against?  Is the plate with two fingers on that anchor?  It should fit onto a shoulder of the anchor pin and not be under the pin.  Possibly you could send a photo of what you are dealing with.

1969 Monza
Searching for the reason black dust all over the tire/wheel cover, I found that 
one of the wheel cylinder  pistons had blown out of the cylinder. ??? 
There is a plate with 2 fingers behind the "pin" (that the shoes and springs go 
on). The forward piston was able to bypass this "Block". I could not get the 
rear piston out past the rear "Finger" but I could get it past the front finger.
It appears that that this pin/finger plate & etc can be screwed off of the back 
plate. Is this so? Can it be removed?  It's on there TIGHT!
This plate/finger appears to be 1/4" thick.
I'm stuck. Any advice will be appreciated.
