Default Midstar rear brake question/identification

I got this Midstar wheel off the bay, it came with a drum attached, but my juice drum backing plate seems to be an ill fit. Can someone tell me what kind of drum this is? I assumed it was a 67-72 juice drum due to the bearings in the drum, but I dunno?

Assuming you have the '63-'72 backing plate with the big lip around it have you backed off the adjusters? If they are all the way out and your new drum is unused that could be the problem right there.

Have a look here on my thread, on post 6
it explains all the differences

https://www.jockeyjournal.com/forum/...d.php?t=213486

drums and backing plates years and differences and should be enough to explain, but put a photo up of your backing plate.
I reckon Mike is right and you might have the backing plate for 58-63 juice drums, which shared the drums from mechanical setups, and therefore the backing plates 'fall' into the drum
