Can Dexter Drums Be Turned

Recommended Posts

I recently repacked the wheel bearings on our new to us Ollie.  I noticed that the rear axle has a fairly sizeable "catch" at every revolution.  I'm sure it is costing my tow vehicle MPG.  Can the dexter drums be taken to a local autoparts shop to be turned or should I replace them.  I'm guessing they are warped.

Yes, if they aren’t too badly out of round or worn.  The drums are marked with the maximum re-bore diameter.
