need help with drum brakes, 76 Cj5

I'm a little lost. How do you get the drums off? Does this center cap have to come off first? Just don't need to break stuff. Thanks in advance.

Take the lug nuts off and then hit the outside of the drum with a rubber mallet or something similar and it should come off...

Center cap only has to come off when you take the axle apart... So anything like the brake backing plate it would have to come off, but not for the brakes...

Will this help when you do your brakes?

That's an awesome diagram. I'm not really doing a brake job. I'm getting ready to take the rear end off to repair my frame. I need to get inside the drums to unhook the parking brake cables first. Thanks for the responses. I'm really hoping to get my frame right before winter really sets in, as I'm stuck working outside.

When I did my frame I took the e-brake cable(s) off the frame and left it on the axle. That could work for you too if you are pressed for time. Cheers.
