No, the Mather kit includes a vertically mounted brake wheel
of a completely different size and style.
The only HO scale Klasing brake wheel of the type used on these
DSS&A box cars was produced by AWE (Anthony Wentzel Enterprises)
for his imported brass "PS-0" early Pullman Standard welded box
Probably the closest brake wheel in general appearance would be
a Universal brake wheel (with a central "hub" and slanted spokes
radiating to an outer rim). Kadee makes this style.

Red Caboose makes a plastic Klasing hand brake for the Mather reefer. This may be the one you need. I understand, unfortunately, that Red Caboose will no longer supply parts.
