Re: Transmission Disaster avoided

I know it could get noisy with a drum change but I will hope for the best. I have at 1st glance what I think is a nice looking set of drums from a later model transmission can anyone tell me for shore I believe they are the same as the earlier low and reverse drums Or are there differences.

A question to those who use wood bands

I know that any band material lifetime is based on driving habits as well as other criteria. But for those of you who use wood Assuming average driving style I.e. Minimal slipping And decent drums How do they stand up. Also any recommendations as to suppliers?
