I going through some transmission parts in my T parts bldg. and have several drums. I think I have some good ones and was wondering what the outside diamater is for a NOS drum.

I have enough good parts to build up at least 2 more transmissions and don't want to use drums that are to thin and not cracked.

I was thinking 7 1/2" was fairly close but nothing under.

Thanks Dan for finding the information. I knew I had read that somewhere.

Don't machine the drums to make them pretty and nice. You could kiss them with a file and pretty them up with emery cloth. Ford did not put any extra thickness in the drums, particularly the low speed drum. Removing any significant metal is a bad idea.
