There is a "star wheel" accessed thru a slot on the backside of the "wheel". When you put a brake adjusting tool in that slot moving the tool up turns the wheel in one direction, moving the tool down turns it in the other direction. I don't remember which direction is which but you can tell after once you start turning the star wheel.
The tire needs to be off the ground. Tighten or loosen the brakes until you can freely sping the tire by hand.
A screwdriver can be used to do this, but it's much more difficult than with a brake too.

Remove the tire, and on the back of the backing plate, you will see a slot which may or may not have a rubber plug in it. Look inside, and you will see a wheel with teeth on it. Using a screwdriver, pry up or down on this wheel to loosen it. If the drum quits turning, then you're tightening it. Once it's loosened enough, the drum will pull right off. Often times, the brakes are worn enough that the drum will come off anyways. On occasion, especially if it's been sitting a long time, the drum may require a couple of blows from a rubber hammer, or a regular hammer using a block of wood to deaden it if you don't have a rubber hammer in order to break the rust loose. You use this same method for rear wheel drive GM vehicles all the way up to now that utilize drum brakes.
