If your replacing them then just go ahead and pound them off with a hammer, if you are getting them turned or some thing and need to replace, spray some thing like pb penetrating luve on the back where it meets the hub and let it soak for a while then pound with a rubber mallet.

Hi all, this is my first post so my apoligies if its out of order,can anyone give any tips on converting the front drum brakes on my Mazda 1000 ute 74 model to disc brakes,any assistance greatly apreciated, tks. jon.
Raise and support the front of the vehicle on jackstands. Remove the front wheels.
Remove the caliper assembly; do not let the caliper assembly hang by the brake hose, instead support it with a piece of wire looped around the front spring or control arm.
Remove the retaining screw from the brake rotor and remove the rotor from the hub.
An impact driver, No. 3 phillips screwdriver bit, and a hammer may be needed to remove the retaining screw. It is fairly easy to destroy the screw slots using an ordinary phillips screwdriver to remove the tightly driven screw (see photo).
To install the disc, replace the disc on the hub, screw in the retaining screw and replace the caliper assembly.
