Default Adjustment Part needed for old Chicago Brake

Hey fellas, found this site whilst looking for a part for a brake that I recently acquired.

Wondering if anyone has any idea on where I could get the adjustment part for this brake.

The part I need is indicated with the arrow, this isn't my brake, but a picture of the exact same model that I found on a for-sale site.

Thanks in advance for any help!

It looks like your arrow is pointing to the cast slide adjustment that the rear pin sits in. What is wrong with yours?
If it is worn and the brake creeps forward while clamping, try taking it to a welding shop to have it filled in and milled out. That would be the cheapest way to fix it.
This part is not cheap from the factory. If you would like a quote for this part, please send me a message. We are a Chicago D&K dealer.
