Default Late Juice Drum On An Early Star Hub?

Okay, I'm sure this is a dumb question, and yeah, I did a little searching to see if I could find something. I found all sorts of info and I know a lot more about star hubs than I did an hour ago, but still haven't found a definitive answer..........Will the '67-'72 juice drum bolt up to the '36-'66 style star hubs? I know there are differences between the earlier star hub and the midstars , but I haven't got either one in front of me to check. Any info would be much appreciated! THANKS!

The large, non-star side of the star hub will not fit into the bearing sleeve from the later mid-star type drum. If you machined the drum out for clearance, it would bolt up and work with a '63 up backing plate. The tin shield on the star type drum does keep bearing grease out of the brake linings, so you need a way to deal with that.

Thanks Chuck! That's pretty much what I was thinking, thanks for the confirmation. Was asking for another guy trying to figure out if he could fit his later juice drum to a an earlier hub. Oh well, at least now we know!
