I'm thinking about buying n.o.s. rear brake drums for my 63 champ 1/2 ton. now the question,whether it be truck/car has any one ever had a n.o.s. drum be out of round,might they need to be checked before installing ? or are they always ready to go,"unless of course they were dropped or something"

That depends if you buy Drum Only's or Hub and Drum Assemblies.
After Swagging, the Drum Only's may need turning.

many NOS drums were stored, shall we say, in less than better conditions. I once bought 4 NOS drums from N & A and all of them required turning. They really never worked well....
