Hey guys just want to confirm on the proper rear drums for my 1971 military thing. The part numbers on them are 211-501-615A, one has 12mm lugs and the other 14mm for some reason (possibly stripped then retapped). What I can find on that number is they are the same as 55-63' small nut bus?? would really like to confirm before ordering new ones. Thanks for the info

Austin

Hello
Original 1971 181 drums have 12mm holes but the number on them is the same on the split bus until 1963 ...with 14mm holes... Cool

Thank you so much for the information! I found a local shop to turn them, so I will try and install tonight and see what happens.
