Does 3,500 lb Trailer Hub Drum Have Hole for Adjusting Brake Assembly Tightness


I need two 10x2-1/4 hydraulic brake drums for my boat with bolt pattern 5 on 4.5. The problem is all your pictures of drums do not show the hole in the face of the drum so you can adjust the hydraulic brakes.

The reason there isn't a hole in the drums for adjusting brake assemblies is because the hole that was designed for that is actually on the brake assembly backing plate. So a hub/drum like the part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K would be all that you'd need as this is the right size, capacity, and has the correct 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.
