If I remember right '62 brakes didn't have self adjusters and '63 did.  If I
was redoing a '62 brake system, I'd use all the '63 parts.

Mike, you don't need them. The 62 doesn't use them. I own a 62 coupe and did
this research last year when I did a full restore of my rear suspension.
Now, I just took apart the front suspension and they aren't there, either.
