Brake linings on my 31 sedan

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm having a senior moment. When I pulled the drums of the car I noticed that the shoes with the most lining were on the back shoe. I always thought that the primary shoe (front shoe) has the most lining and the back shoe had less. Did the fellow who started this project 18 years ago do it wrong?

Thanks,

Joe C.

Sounds like the layout is correct. The shoe with the longer lining goes on the rear side if the backing plate.

Thanks for the info. These senior moments are coming more often than I like.
