I had to use 3 flat head screwdrivers to wedge a little at a time until it popped off, when you get it all off and cleaned up, look for the thread on here that talks about putting a grease fitting in the hole the brake cam goes through, but be careful when you drill the hole that the grease fitting won't interfere with the spring going back down all the way on the outside of the brake plate

and to get the brake cam out, use a big hammer and a thick piece of wood, if you don't use a piece of wood, then the head of the brake cam will mushroom out and you won't be able to get the spring holder back on or the lever that connects to the brake cables. If it gets mushroomed out, you will have to grind the end down before those 2 things will fit back on there. hope that helps yah

Dang, I wish my drum would've been that easy to get off, and my brake cam was seized up something serious
