Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: Emergency brake linings
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dan Carstensen on Saturday, January 19, 2013 - 10:55 am:

I ordered emergency brake linings for my 26 fordor.
They are way to long & wide. My drum measures 1" x 8". I guess I shouldn't take things for granted. My question is how do you tell what year the rear end is? Can I cut down the linings to fit? I took off the wheels to clean & paint, The lining fell off, so I decided to replace bearings, seals, and linings.

See "Improved car rear brake lining" Feb 2012 forum. Seems they can, and in some cases have to be, cut.

They are steel frames, not cast.

26-27 should have had 11" diameter drums, but Ford factory photos in Bruce's books show that very early 26's, perhaps prototypes, had small drum rears

I have a Sept 25 Fordor and it has the large drums. Maybe some plants still had leftovers?
