I have seen 6 lug Chevy brakes adapted to fit a Model T. I have no pictures.

Im not sure what you are asking. Are you wanting to use the stock 26-27 rear parking brake as a service brake. If so the 26-27 shoes are already lined. Langs and the other catalogs sell a brake equalizer kit to convert the 26-27 parking brake setup to a service brake. If you want to use it on a earlier car you would need to change to a 26-27 style rearend. There are also original aftermarket external brake setups available for both the small and large brake drums. They show up from time to time on e-bay or at swap meets. Then there is the rocky mountain brake setups for sale in the parts vendor catalogs. They are a little pricy but they work very well. The internal 26-27 style internal shoes work good with the equalizer setup and is a little cheaper than the rocky mountain setup. If you are wanting to use accessory lined shoes inside a small brake drum, I do not recommend it as a service brake. There is not enough surface area, and the drums are not thick enough. They will heat up and "fade" very quickly.

The large 26-27 drums you have, used with the brake equalizer set up from langs and the other vendors, will make the cams open together. The equalizer makes the rods have a equal pull on both cams and both wheels will work together. When properally installed you can make both wheels "slide" when applying the brakes

I've seen installations of 55-57 chevy brake drums (10") on 26-7 T rear axles. The cast iron drums supposedly work WAY better than a steel drum I'm told. I believe they retained the T brake shoe
