The Larger Brake Shoe ALWAYS goes to the Rear...The Shorter Brake Shoe ALWAYS goes to the Front.

I was watching an episode a few months ago of "Restoration Garage" (Made in Ontario Canada with David Grainger?..and his wife Janice) and they were doing the Front Drum Brakes on a Series 1 XKE Jaguar.... The guy (One of their best workers) doing the Front Drum Brakes actually put the Drum Brake Shoes on backwards....I could not believe it. I was yelling at my TV Screen and even rewound it a few times to see if I was seeing things.....I wasn't. Unreal... Total Fail.
