2 and 7/8 inches Luis (between CENTRES). Give it a 1/8th inch offset away from the backplate also. I think the 2 7/8 is a bit longer then the standard girder fork brake arm to clear the wheel driven speedo the W/NG has. Nev

Nev
Thank you very much for the measures!
Your comments are very appreciated and accurate!

The external diameter of the shoes was 155mm.
The internal diameter of the drum is 165 mm, so I think the lining would be 5 mm thick.
Best regards!

That Drum diameter is close to standard size which is 6.5 inches in Imperial measures. I hope you get the sort of pleasure from your W/NG as I have from mine Luis. I first put it on the road about 1998 . 20 years with not even the head off it again. Rear chain and rear tyre. That's all. Nev
