Several parts for your original 12 inch brakes, are no longer available.
Changing them out to the correct style, is rather cheap, but does cost a little more than just the shoes for yours.
Also, the new style has more efficiency than the old, as well as more stopping power.
You can also, if you wish, purchase self adjusting electric brakes, which is the ultimate for electric brakes.
