Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: What type of brakes do I have.

I have a set of brakes that i would like to put on a TT. They came off a TT rear end but this is all I have. I think one at is the Rocky Mountain set of brakes and the other is the inside ford emergency brake. I know I need more for the mountain brakes but don't really know much about it. Any help or advice would be good. Please tell me anything you know about what I got. I'm new to the model t hobby. Thanks. Matt

Matt,

The four shoes in the upper right hand corner of your picture are the factory Ford service brake shoes. You can purchase the new linings for them from any of the T parts places. I can't say exactly what the accessory brakes are. I have AC brakes for my TT but they are very different than yours so you could probably rule that company out. The brackets appear to be Rocky Mountain but maybe someone can chime in on them that has a TT. Good luck with your project.

The band in the upper left appears to be a standard internal transmission band. It can be used for brake, reverse and low band.
The shoes on the right appear to be shoes for the rear wheels, can't tell what size drum as there is nothing to scale them for comparison.
The parts at the lower left appear to be the stationary part of a set of external brakes, a none ford accessory. Again tough to know what style. To make them work you will need external brake bands and energizing rods.
With a better picture we might be able to be more definitive.
