We know they are 12". BUT have you measured them with a drum mic to find out what the oversize may be???

AND, they are NOT 43 fin but 45.

Please accept my most sincere apologies...... Yes these are 45 fin drums. I apologize for mistakenly punching in 43 rather than the correct 45.

The best numbers I can get on the drum dimensions today are: one measures 12 & 1/32, the other is at 12 & 2/32..... (or some may say 1/6th.)

It seems to be very difficult to get brake drums mic'd these days when 2 out of 3 parts store guys asked "what are those?" when looking at the drums.

Located in Superior WI.

12" + 1/32nd. is 12.0625" which is still OK as the MAX oversize is 12" + .090" on the outside. 12 + 2/32nd. which would be +1/8th. Oversize which equals 12" plus .125" over is Beyond the .12"060" - 12.090" oversize which means that drum is N/G. You need a drum mic to make sure as it's just about impossible to measure with a ruler.

Sorry Fitzo1969.  By the measurements given I assumed you used some kind of ruler as that measurement I've NEVER heard of. Usually it's in the thousandths oversize.

Just go to an older shop that does brake work & they should have the PROPER measuring device.

Sorry again.
