Did we break something???

My husband is changing our rear brakes and wheel bearings. He removed the drum by unbolting the four bolts on the rear of the braking plate. He removed the old shoes, put the new ones in and when he tried to put the drum back on the braking plate fell off. Did we break it? we can't find and bolt or holes where it was attached? Thanks

I looked at the diagram on the ford parts web site and it looks like there may have been 2 rivets that held it on. Does that sound right? If so, What do we do now? Thanks

Yeah, they're riveted. I gues you could try some small nuts & bolts or try to rerivet it back on. If you try to rerivet, take the old rivets with you to a hardware or home center. They look larger than a standard size.

when you bolt the drum back on it will hold the plate in place
