Anyone have a rear brake caliper diagram?

I am on my 2nd leaking driver side caliper from AutoZone.  1st time was off the puck and this time it is the swivel for the emergency brakes.  Anyone know if I need to disassemble the puck to get to the swivel?

Someone helped me with the Ford manual and scanned the pages out of it.
If anyone else needs these in the future please don't hesitate to ask.

In my experience, lots of reman parts, especially from places like AZ, are complete and total JUNK. The internet is full of complaints of "lifetime guarantee" AZ starters, alternators, etc failing within a few months. Yes, you get a free replacement, but that doesnt do much good when you are stranded on a lonely dark road in the middle of the night.

I bought brand new rear calipers for the TC from NAPA roughly 16 or 17 years ago. They were pricy (I seem to remember around $70 each), but they have performed flawlessly for the last 16+ years / 75K miles.

That is the general consensus i have been hearing from many people. You are the second person mentioning the NAPA calipers.

I got another replacement from AZ but this time flushed it out so we'll see. I don't have high hopes and I did find a kit to rebuild the caliper. When this one leaks and I disassemble it and nothing obvious is wrong I will probably go the NAPA route this time and take the loss. At least I have some insight on the caliper before disassembly.
