joegaddy All of above has worked for me at times, one more thought, grind off the "head" of the retaining pins on the back of the backing plate.
This might allow the shoes to come with the drum.
Just be as stubborn as the drums, you'll win.

beetle9 be sure and get the penetrating oil in around where the lugs extend through the drum and arund the ring on the axle end that extends through. This is usually where the sticking occurs. Also, be sure you have adjusted the shoes out of the way. There may be a lip on the drum if its worn badly. Other than that, a torch might help, but it would fry the grease and probably ruin the seal. If none of the above works, put something blunt on the end of an air chisel and vibrate against it. This might break it loose. One of the above will work, keep at it.

SJFast Don't be beating on a cast iron brake drum with a hammer. Hit the shoulder on the end of the axle while applying pressure to the drum from behind with a pry bar and the drum should loosen. Also, soak that area with Liquid Wrench....several applications over a period of time. This has always worked for me.

Jim Weeks Johnnymopar is right. If all you have is a small 16 oz carpenter's hammer, you probably won't get it off with that. Bang all around the edge with a mini sledge hammer, and it will eventually come off.

johnnymopar just keep banging! eventually they will come off.

rear brake drums

Has anyone got any tricks to get off (rear)brake drums that have been on so long they feel like they're welded on?
