Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

Per W-O Mechanics Manual, reprint of 1948 edition:
"Do not remove more than .030" (.762 mm) thickness of metal (.060" - 1.52 mm - overall diameter). If a drum is reconditioned in this manner, either the correct oversize lining (.060" - 1.52 mm, oversize shoes supplied by factory) must be installed or a shim equal in thickness to the metal removed must be placed between the lining and shoe so that the arc of the lining will be the same as that of the drum."
I could not find any specification regarding the max dia of the drums.

: Does anyone know the maximum I.D. that you can turn a 9" drum to?
