65 Brake Adjuster needed

I need a little help with this one. I am in the process of restoring a 65 Tradewind. I just replaced the original split rim wheels and tires. The only problem is that the right rear brake adjuster is shot. Does anyone have any idea where I can get the correct adjuster? The ones I have found on different sites do not look like the ones on my trailer. Thank you.

I had a similar adjuster problem on my '64.
I also hunted around online.

I ended up going to an established NAPA auto parts store.
Find "the guy" who's been there 20 yerars. He got out the electric trailer brake parts catalog (not Airstream...trailer brakes) and found the right one based on brake size (10 or 12").

One day later they came in, 5000 miles later work great.

On the chance that they are Hadco brakes, try this company in Arizona.

New backing plate assemblies are cheap, Lots of people just replace everything.
