You could try using 2 inch wide strips of aluminum foil on the drum edge and let the lid seal. Cheap easy test and fix, If you notice, there are quite a few guys who use the foil on the edge to seal up their lids. Big plus is once it's all greasy you can put new on if needed, the nomex, not so much.
