Anyone know if they were the 9" or 10" in that year?

Yes.

Sorry, couldn't help it. All 56 TR3 should have 10" drums, some all-round and some just on the rear. The rear brakes changed from 9 to 10 in 55, and back to 9 in 59.

Weren't the front drums always 10 inch, with the back drums vacillating from 9 to 10 and then back to 9?

My 1958 TR3A came new with 10" drums on the rear and disks up front. All are still on the TR with almost 200,000 miles on it.

Yes, that's right. Sorry I wasn't clear.

My early 56 has 10 inch on all four corners. Cheers, Mike
