The high-intensity band was installed after the drum was dropped in. It took a little massaging to get the band to snap in place. For the 2-4 band, Straughn suggests using a late-model high-intensity band over a wide band. The wide band has little more hold, but the high-intensity band grabs and releases faster, which is more important in a high-performance application. The wide band is better suited for towing or in cases where the drum is worn in the center and replacement is cost-prohibitive.The servo pin was checked for clearance and was in spec, so the washer was installed.
