I am trying to remove my rear brake drum to replace a wheel stud but I cant get it off. Ive used plenty of WD40 because I dont have my pbblaster. Ive beat the s*** out of it with a hammer and it still wont budge. Is there any special tool I need or method.
Another method would be to jack the truck up, take the wheel off, spin one lug nut back onto a stud about half way down, start up the truck, put it in drive, let spin a little bit, and then jab the brakes and see what happens.
I did get the drum off and just put the new 22's on it. Getting the new stud into place was a PITA, I had to use another large nut and a metal brace. I had to tighten the wheel nut till it pulled it into place.
