SOURCE: toyota brake problem
the prob is still your master cylinder. the seal sounds like its back on its self or there is a wear line that pushes it back, get 1 from a scrapy that works, fit undo the rear nipples and leave to drip for 5 mins . then do the front, look at the rear load compensator some vehicles have a bleed nipple to release trapped air from there, what happens when nipple open and u push pedal.

you have to get a brake adjusting tool and a screw driver....
put the brake tool in and locate the adjuster wheel, use a screwdriver to release the locking prawl, its tuff but doable.
If there are no access openings to the adjuster, either in the drum or backing plate, then you need to work it off with a few pry bars

SOURCE: I removed the rear wheel
the drum should come off, if they are stuck, sometimes a few whacks with a hammer gets them loose, or sometimes you can thread a 8mm bolt in the threaded holes to press them out. just do one side at a time and you can refer to the other side for reference

Testimonial: "thanks very much!! Now I know that Im on the right track but the drums still wont come loose...they r metal on metal and wont come loose. suggestions?"
Under normal circumstances, the drum should slide right off once the wheel is removed.
If you have built up rust holding it on, there are two threaded holes near the center of the drum to aid in removal.
Insert two 12mm bolts into the holes and, while adding plenty of lubricant, turn the bolts in even amounts until they push the drum off.
Be sure to keep them lubed, as they will strip out easily if not.
If you have aftermarket drums without the holes or the screwholes are stripped out, smacking the face of the drum with a dead blow hammer will help free it up, but takes much longer for success.

there are two treaded holes in the face of the drum
find two bolts that fit the threads and screw them in untill they bottom out on the axle flange.
then give each bolt one turn at a time alternating between the two untill drum is off
