I got this photo from the internet, but is the same as mine. The piece that the wheel studs go through in front of the drum, is stopping me from getting the drum off.

The Photo Shows Everything

OK. You have an Inboard Drum Design. This is unique and the axle has to come out first. On the Outboard Design, the drum will slide over the hub.

Do me a favor when you get it apart. Can you give me the exact brake shoe size (inside drum dia. and width of shoe pad) and the Rear End Asm. Tag Info (if still there)?

I got the drum off!!!

I finally got the drum off. I took the axle shaft out, then removed the nut off the hub that requires a special tool. Didn't have that special tool, so I used a screw driver and hammer. Then I removed the locknut, then inner nut, and then she slid right off! Piece of cake, I just wish my manual would have told me this in the brake section. But I have to say, it was very inconvient to remove part of the drivetrain just to get to the brakes. This has got to be one of the things I hate about full-floaters. Anywase, thank you all very much for your input. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Oh Yeah

KULTULZ,
I already put it back together, sorry. But I did measure the pads to determine 13 inch brakes or 11? inch brakes. The shoes width is 2.5 inches. Basically, alls I know is, this is a 14 bolt full-floating axle with 13 inch brakes, 10.5 ring gear, and 3.73 gears. I love it, very strong and perfect gear ratio for me. Great torque and decent highway rpm's.
