Default 4 lug beetle drums on short axle gearbox

I have a pair of late beetle drums in Porsche pattern. I want to fit these to a short axle beetle gearbox

Does anyone know the amount I need to get machined off the snout of the later drum?

Thanks,
Lee

Bugger... Machined mine down only a month or so ago... No idea how much I took off though!

I will try and measure the snout tomorrow.

Thanks,

I think you machine the inside of the drum and the snout

I just machined the snout, I'll check the inside tomorrow as they are now spares and not fitted to a bug

I only did the outside too.
Around 13mm off the top of my head. Sounds like Garrick has got you covered though

14 mm off the snout, nothing off the inside worked for me.
