Brake assembly size ..

Hi folks, are the brakes 10" or 12" on our trailers ? Does anyone know ?

I am thinking of grabbing the self adjusting ones if I can find them cheap, or just replace the shoes if I can not ....

Normally the best way to go is buying the backing plate assembly and just bolt it on.

New brakes, hardware and magnet all pre assembled.

Its best off if you just remove the drum and measure it yourself.

Urrgghhh ... I do not want to do that I want to know the size and shop

I remember that just the shoes are very close to the cost of the whole thing.
