i can't get the rear drums off of my 69 wagoneer. i just picked it up and the rear brakes are shot... i hear them grinding. so i know i will need new drums and maybe all the internals. but first i have to just get the drums off. i have tried taping with hammer.... prying it with a bar.... pb blaster... im out of options... maybe i am just dumb and don't know about something.... the drum should just slid off right? the front did with no problem. it has a dana 44 on it i believe but im not even sure about that. research is min on the internet about this sweet ride. so im here hoping that you guys with them can shed some light on how to get the drums off. and if you know where any info is i could read up on this car so i know more about it please send me a link... thanks guys

If this Wag has the two-piece Dana 44s on the rear, you need to remove the large nut in the center of the drum. If you have a normal 44, try to access the adjuster through the backing plate to back off the brake shoes.

Does the drum move at all? If not, Whack the drum really hard on the face (part that mates against the wheel) near the corner (but not on it!) of the drum. That should crack it loose from the center hub if it's not riveted to the hub. If it is riveted, you can cut the heads off with a chisel and take the drum separate. (I've had to do a few of those, including my '73 J4000 and my son's '68 Wag)
