Hello PLVMB

I recently went through a simular issue with what you are doing with your brakes.
There is an available solution to go brand new backing plates;
They are Hays / AL-KO 12"x2"
Part numbers 185100 and 185150
ETrailer.com sells them
RedNeck Trailer Supply sells them
They are specifically designed to work with the zero offset drums that we have on our vintage travel trailers.
You get brand new "guts" that work great while allowing us to keep the vintage look of our original drums.

Also your brakes pretty much appear to be original so the magnets are most likely 6 volt magnets....mine were. If you are using them with an old time based brake controller you will be fine with them wired in parallel....however if you are using a more modern inertia type controller, you will need to rewire the two magnets in series to make the controller think there is one 12 volt magnet.
If for any reason you decide to upgrade your axle and or any part of your brakes... let me know. I am presently looking for what you have.
