Question about 1989 Chevrolet C/K 3500
Run the adjusters backward first so the shoes are moved away from the drum. Look on the studs to see if there are thin metal keepers on the threads. If you find one, remove it. Squirt rust penetrating oil where the axle flange meets the drum. Allow it time to work, then take a 3 lb sledge hammer and start tapping the drum near the studs without hitting one. Give it a good whack to break it loose from the axle flange. If it' really stuck on, use an acetylene torch to apply heat around the flat areas near the studs. If none of these steps work, there are drum pullers you can rent to do the job.
