What is the best way to reshape transmission bands. Mine are out of round. Some are oval, others are twisted a bit.
Can cast iron ears also be reshaped ?
I will use wood liners on them.

Thanks in advance
Pat

I use an old drum and just keep tapping and tweaking till they are round. The ears I do believe are forged. KGB

Like Keith posted, use an old drum to reshape with a leather faced or rubber mallet.

Best to get the 'ears' about 3" - 4" apart after getting the circumference round, and removing any twist to the metal band.
