(Yes, I realized the pistons turn in, my old '88 5kS had an Allen inset in the piston for same reason.)
Purchased generic "cube", did not fit.  Found the Lisle 28600 at Sears Hardware this am for $11.99 which has the correct pins to match
the piston grooves.  Also picked up some synthetic hi-temp brake lube for the pins and e-brake shaft.   After loosening the e-brake shaft last night, by following Peter Schutlz's advice to pry the shaft out about 10mm, found lots of crud but it freed up easily after cleaning.   Then found both e-brake cables were broken at the inner end.  Arrrrgh!     Minor project turns into major headache.  Cables are about $45 online.

Thanks for the input, guys.  The brake saga continues tonight......
