The brake drum is retained by the spindle nut and the outer wheel bearing. You have to remove the steel cap in the center of the drum to expose the spindle nut. Then remove the cotter pin and then the spindle nut. The drum will then slide right off.

I thought i was missing something. I took the tire off and have not been ablble to get off the next piece. I thought it was the drum as it is very thick metal and jiggles just a little. I see a hole for cotter pin but do not see a pin

Adjuster needs to be all the way in and you might have to back the parking brake off some.

Are you sure the emergency brake is off? I did that, and it doesn't want to come off when that's on. Wasn't a problem otherwise unless theres another problem rolleyes.gif
