There is a steel liner in these drums but I doubt there is much material 
that can be cut, sometimes there is a min dimension cast into a drum. You 
might look for that and if it's there be guided by that dimension.

Hi Todd, the quick answer is I don't think so.
There are a couple differences between the Z drums and Triumph drums. I
think one of Kas' books explained them.
By what I hear, the finned aluminum drums are no longer available.
BTW, I recently bought a set of Z drums on e-bay and am planning on fitting
them to my TR6. I'll keep you posted.
Cheers, Bill
