Ok guts need advice/tips.

Got my passenger side brakes done with a new wheel cylinder. Took some time to get the drum back in due to figuring out the adjuster andgetting it all lined up right.

In the driver side now and I can't for the life of me to get the drum off. The brakes aren't holding it on it spins freely. The little cap that keeps water/dirt out from the axle nut/bearing and it looks like there is some rust on the bearing. Tried prying at it, smacking at it with a rubber mallet while prying at it, no luck yet.

Ok tried checking to see if any parts stores had slide hammers witty adapters for the wheel studs with no luck. Next is wd 40 or a torch. Gotta get it off ti get the new drum on and the brake shoes replaced.

50/50 mix of trans fluid and acetone in a spray bottle. Best penetrant ever. Let it soak on there for a bit

Sprayed it with wd 40 trapped at it and Reid to pry at it more. Looks like it moved a little but i'm out of light and letting it sit and soak for the night. Have a little torch to heat it up some tomorrow.

Try doing it the right way by removing the four bolts from the back plate and pulling the drum and spindle both.
