Question about Cars & Trucks
Ive tried hammer and wood using quite a force and it won't budge. It just won't turn.
Some of those filter rings were reverse to unlock. Check to see that this isn't the case before you crack the ring trying to remove it.

SOURCE: I cannot remove my car
Are you peeling back the dash board cover when you do this?I had to remove all knobs and remove dashboard screws in order to remove my radio. Hey I wonder if that's a security feature.

That kind of thing happens a lot and I work in a auto-shop. The corrosion builds up on the hub and swells up in the middle of the rim. 1. Put all lugnuts back on, leave them half way off. 2.Keep kicking the tire from the backside until it pops off the hub. Don't worry, you can't damage the rim by kicking it yourself. (Unless your the incredible hulk.lol ) The lugnuts will keep the tire from falling on the brake components when it comes off the hub.

take a 3 to 5 pound hammer strrike the center link around the outside circle where the idler arm goes through three good blows usually does it. alternative use a tie rod/ ball joint seperator available at any good parts store. a hammer always worked for me

SOURCE: cannot remove brake drums
Get the Rear up on Jack Stands; and get the rubber plugs out. If you don't have jack stands, take it to a shop.
Once on Jack Stands - don't be 'nice' to the rubber plugs on the back of the wheel. They are easily replaceable. Get them out. Screwdriver, jackhammer, kitchen knife... get them out. Then turn back the adjustor to substantially loosen the brake shoes (as you are already aware...)
Not familiar with the 6-8 bolts going into the hub system. But should be fairly obvious to you - if you have that...
The shoes can get quite worn into the drum on a 2500 truck, when maintenance is not always done...
I assume with the rear up on Jackstands - and the tire off - you can rotate the drum by hand? Right? You should be able to... If able to rotate the drum - then the only thing holding the drum on - is the shoes... or a broken spring messed up inside. Get the rubber plugs on the backside of the brake plate - OFF. Again - these are cheap and readily available.
