Just replaced both sides of my 1968 sprite. It was a kinda barn find, just gave up trying to use existing parts although i have a small machine shop. Decided to get new everything from Moss or Victoria British. Sad all parts are now made in China but look ok. Also replaced all bearings seals and did rear axle rebuild while at it. Havent finished car yet but only issue was brake shoes were very snug in the new drums, but tapping them arround a bit and slackening off brake adjuster to max they seem ok and wheels rotate freely. Also replaced handbrake cables and clevis pins while engine and gearbox were out. Parts are pretty inexpensive and its not worh using old worn and oil soaked parts. Good luck

Shame Moss and others doesnt sell it as a unit , guess they make more money that way. Managed to fix mine but i have a small machine shop in my RV garage so it looks like new now , just had to clean it up skim the base and replace the tiny o ring. Shame you even have to buy gaskets seals and nuts washers as separate items. Glad i is fine in your car now. My next job is to make a new part for the front of the heater fan casing which was missing and is not availlable from moss. Its the front plate with a shut off door inside that connects to the large front air hose. Should be a fun job.

Great article need to do this to my 68 sprite and replace the soft top which was rotten and in bits when i first got the car last year. Great pictures helps a bunch not sure where the rear retaining strips fit or look like though. Like your sprites name, mines called Basel after English Basil Faulty ( John Clease , as the number plate is BZL , might get a custom one BASIL40 if its availlable.
