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.
