Brake Drums

I took off the wheels on my 49 Chevy pickup to check out the brakes.
The think the rear end is a mid 70's gm
One of the drums had the stud holes reamed out about twice the size of the wheel studs. The other side is normal?
Is this going to hurt anything. I would think once the wheel is draw-ed tight it should stay put. Any input would be appreciated

I don't know what anyone would do that for but, it shouldn't hurt anything. if it bothers you, get larger diamater studs and drill the axle holes accordingly

There is a lot of things that they done on this truck that made me think
WHY? There is even a spacer on the side with the larger holes and none on
the other side? I'm putting on new rims so the spacer is gone.

Sounds to me like you should break out the tape measure and string and check the geometry of that rear to the vehicle.

The only reasons I can see to have a spacer on one side and not the other is different offset wheels or an improperly installed rear.
