Default 94 Manual 4x4 | Where to get parking brake parts?

I purchased my 94 D21 without working parking brakes. I assumed it was an easy fix and ignored the problem for the last year. Today I took apart the rear drums to find that ALL of the parking brake parts in both drums are gone. I am also missing a spring that is external to the drum on both sides. The cables to the drums are fine and the pads and drum are in great shape.

I would really like to have a working parking brake (I live on a hill) but I cant source all new parts for both sides. As far as I know, none of the junk yards in diving distance from me (Seattle) have the correct D21 to pull parts from. Am I totally screwed? I thought about a disk brake swap but all the swaps I have seen ditch the e-brake. What would y'all do?

I Attached the parts diagram sent to me by the local Nissan dealer. from what I can tell I need the following parts on both sides:

44125N
44118C
44135
44045
44215M
44215
44030H
44118F
44118
44200B
44209N

You just need to find a HB with the H233B rear axle, then rob the parts you need.

H233Bs came in V6 HBs 4WDs and 96-97 4 cyl 4WDs. You can also use Pathys with drum brakes or you can convert your brake system in the rear to disc brakes.

You could also be lazy if you have a job and take the truck to a brake shop and have them fix it while you slave away at your day job to pay for it.

Would they realistically be able to find the parts? I will call around.

if they agree to do the work, they should be able to get the parts.

The parts will not be genuine Nissan, but they should work.
