Default Rear Brake drum

Hi all,I have a small problem removing the rear brake drum. My rear brake aren't working,so I decide to clean them up (everything is seized up-brakes shoes and the spind that turns the rear shoes). Problem is- the drum is loose-move back and fort but can't get it off. Is there a snap ring needs to be remove before the brake drum can come off.

thanks-to anyone can help

loosen your brakes up all the way. wiggle it left to right and you could hit it with a rubber mallet a few times, to break up the smuck inside. when you get it off be sure to take some fine grit sand paper to the inside where the brakes create friction sometimes it will crystalize!

I have remove the linkages and everything. I can get the drum to move about 1/2 inch in and out. I try a ply bar and hammer with no luck

I saw a diagram showing a damper ring on the back side of the drum,should it be remove in order for the drum to slide off?

dumb question but did you remove the cotter pin and castle nut and pulled off the hub? 6 bolts and back off the brakes. it should pop off.

Yep it all off except the drum.I going to try a bigger hammer,larger vice grip and use more heat and try to get the cam to move back & fort a little-to see if I can get the brakes to release a little more.

I recently cleaned my rear brakes and had some difficulty taking the brake drum off. I first used some marvel mystery oil were the drum meets the axle. I gave the drum a few taps and let it sit. The next day when the drum would not wiggle loose I took a large flat screwdriver and inserted it into the indentation in the drum and hit the screwdriver 2 or 3 times. I then rotated the drum to the next indentation and repeated the process until the drum came off the axle. I then removed both brake shoes and lubricated their mounting holes.

Mine did the same thing.You have to take the rear brake cable's real loose then move the cam back and forth so you can release the brake pads down alittle bit.Thats whats keeping the drum from coming off.

Run the brake cable adjustment all the way out grab the arm that they hook up too and move it back and forth to losen the brakes then try to tap the drum off.
