Identify This Rear brake cylinder part

I know it goes between the spring and the cup, but these are shot and I need to know what they are called to find new ones. It isn't in the diagram, but should be between number 9 and 8

What makes you think they are shot. Look pretty good to me. All they really do is ensure the edges of the cups do not turn in. Most modern brake cylinders don't even have them anymore.

Ha ha. Not a matter of faith at all. I think I would have posted that picture instead. The good news is based on your pictures you only need one.

All jokes aside, anyone know what these are called? The geniuses at local parts stores are useless.

1964FLDUO!

A generic name would be 'spring cups', but the odds are they will be hidden as part of a kit.

Here's what I found on my parts shelf. Don't know anything about the 'O' rings though.
If you have a NAPA store nearby, I'd look there first.
