Does someone know the original thickness of the front brake lining on the Phantom front drum brake? I have found some brake lining material but I don't know what I'm trying to replicate. Anyone have a NOS set of shoes on which they could measure the linings?
 

No Repro please

Look Ma, No Hands!
I have a complete NOS forebrake assembly on my '49 B6 but the shoes seem a bit too large for the drum & they "drag" fairly hard; I've only ridden the bike a few blocks & it's too hard to pedal. Could give you the lining thickness measurement but that could only lead to possibly more problems(?)

You need to loosen up the axle nut on the brake side, then pull the brake lever to push the shoes out and center the porkchop then re-tighten the axle nut. Should not rub after that unless something is wrong.
