The TT rear brake drums measure 12" diameter.

The brake shoes are 2" wide.

Josh,

Dan's answer is correct.

If I'm telling you something you already know - just ignore me. Factory TT braking was designed just like the regular T's. They relied on the transmission brake as the service brake. The rear drums, although bigger on a TT, were primarily for parking and emergencies. The rear drums were used as a service brake when an outside after-market auxiliary brake package was installed.
