What's the best way to remove the brake drum? I removed the cotter pin and king nut but it doesn't want to pull off. Any suggestions?
I really should read replies first... You bet me to it hahaGot a soft brass or a heavy plastic hammer? Back all 4 of the brake adjusters out, thread the castle nut back onto the axle until the head of the nut is even with the end of the axle. Then whack the end of the axle shaft squarely. You should now be able to pull the drum off. If not, you should feel more endplay when you pull on the drum... pull it out and then whack the end of the axle again. By now you should be a winner...
