Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Need help ID brake shoe and drom so I can get linings.

11" drum on rear 21" demountables wood spoke wheels. I believe that the rear axle and backing plates are 26/27. These shoes came off a Tsalad, so I don't know what year they are. But they do fit the backing plates and the wheel mounts and the drum fits fine.

I need linings and rivets for these shoes and I get confused when it comes to the 26/27 brakes futss.

Do I need 26/27 brake linings and rivets? Are they available from the usual suppliers? I've read the some install Model A linings and grind to fit as they are copper wire lined and hold up longer.

WWHD?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like ordinary 26-7 brakes to me

Yup. You need the rivets and band material. Any of the vendors have them for 26-27 cars. The band material is pre-cut. Installation is pretty straight forward. They do sell a rivet tool for peening the rivets heads that's kinda handy.
