Mike and ListersCurrently I have a bunch of Austin Healey brake drums, over 50 of BN1-BJ8 types, and some have signs that balancing was attempted by grinding off material on the drum exterior surfaces.  Maybe 10 percent. Next time I have to move them I will do a better survey. these are all old buggers so I doubt this balancing attempt was done in the last 40 years. While on the issue of drums, how many of you remember when mechanics would put a spring around the outer circumference of the drum. I have seen that many times but never looked into the reason. Perry

First of all I want to ask if the is some of the raised rim on the out side of the brake drum, does that mean they have been balanced in the past?  Mike MacLean
