Unable to remove rear drums

as the title says i cant get the right rear off, i have retracted the shoes and the drum still wont budge, hit it with a hammer a few times and nothing,

any ideas or things i missed?
are there retaining rings i'm not seeing, hub bolts or something like that?

No retaining rings or any funny. Get a bigger hammer, rent a drum puller, or hit it with some heat. If none of that works cut it and replace the internals afterward

I forgot my own motto "if all else fails, get a bigger hammer"
gave it a few good whack with the 5 lb and it came off, the shoes on right side were good left side on the other hand are worn to metal and past that its all bad!

replaced everything on the inside,

how do i adjust these drum brakes, still have a loose pedal and it gives to the floor

Wow, NO ONE has suggested PB-BLaster? Or Kroil? Get a full can of one or the other and shoot it around where the hub slides over the drum, and the holes for the lugs. It's obviously rusted into place along that back surface and/or the hub bore. Give it part of a day, then SPIN the drum and hit it from BEHIND with a small sledge at several different places around the circumference of the drum. Get some ear protection; the neighbors are gonna think you've founded some funky new church, with all the ringing. I had to give one of ours probably 50 whacks, spinning it all the while, to eventually get it loose.

You can manually adjust the brakes through the hole in the bottom of the backing plates. To tighten up the shoes, you can rotate the starwheel with a screwdriver. It will "ratchet" over the self-adjusting lever in this direction. To loosen up the shoes, you rotate the starwheel in the opposite direction, although it will not ratchet over the self-adjusting lever in this direction. You need to use a small scewdriver (or piece of stiff wire) to push the lever off the starwheel. Cheers!
