Default G-body / S10 Rear Drum Brake Anchor Pin

Does the anchor pin on a G-body/S10 rear drum brake backing plate have a nut on the backside to secure it to the plate? I am talking about the stud at the top of the backing plate (just above the wheel cylinder). My junkyard backing plates did not have a nut on the backside. Putting the brakes together, however, I am noticing it is really easy for the stud to work its way out of the hole. The stud does have threads, which I am not sure but look like 14mm.

Any help is appreciated.

I just yanked an NOS one out of the box....nope, no nut. There are threads, but it appears it is pressed into a hole and the splines hold it into place, similar to the way a wheel stud is installed. The threaded part should fit into a hole in the axle tube flange. On some models it calls for a nut, but can't remember on the G-bods.

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

I am pretty sure they are press fit = new backing plates or weld that one in place.

I installed backing plates I bought new, there is a nut to hold that anchor in place. The old ones also had a nut on that anchor.
