Should be an access on the back plate #5 to get to the adjuster #12

Should be a plug on the hub just pull it out and turn the hub to find the adjuster. A flat scruedriver will do the trick
I agree^^^^^^^

Don't forget the adjuster will only turn one way unless you take another screwdriver and push in on number 14 on sabers schematic. when you turn it you will hear a clicking sound if you turn it the other way you won't if you got the clip pressed in far enough, that will be loosening? good luck

Get you a BFH being careful not to hit the studs if it has any. and smack it in between the studs all the way around this should send enough shock through it to loosen it. if not you can wedge a screwdriver between the drum and rear plate and on the opposite side take your hammer and hit the edge of the drum while prying toward you with the screwdriver don't hit it too hard drums have been known to break and don't pry so hard you bend up the drum plate just hold tension on it.

got the hub off, is there a lip between both bearings in the hub, do I pry with a screwdriver to pull them out? now what??? the reason for so many questions is because I have a tendancy to strip and break a lot of parts and want to be sure of what I'm doing thanks for everybody's support.

do you have a manual? If not, get one.

Post pictures so we know what you are looking at.

No I don't have a manual if I did I wouldn't be asking all these question's....lol, but however posting pics would help. Sorry I'm new to this forum stuff .......................and its not a lip its a sleeve I was seeing and it came out but since the bearings I purchased don't have sleeves in em I must have to re use them.

This is where a manual will come in handy, it will tell you what parts you need and what parts you can reuse after inspecting for damage, etc.
