Rear drums wont come off.

'94 250. had truck parked for a while. Was just going over it to make sure it's still all good, and I can not get these drums off, I can slide them out fairly far on the studs, but then get hung up on the shoes, which seem to want to come out with the drum. I tried back the shoes off, but after sitting I guess the adjuster is seized. I dont expect any of the rear brakes to need replacing, so I'd like to try to keep as much of this intact. Any help will be soo much appreciated.
And I also have full access to a shop.

your drums are probably horribly worn.

As in the shoes have worn a ring inside the drum and its catching as you try to take it off, make sense?

I'd suggest new goodies and shoes (as they should be pretty cheap..) Drums turned if they dont mic properly, new shoes, new springs and new adjuster, and why not a new cylinder while you're at it.

Otherwise, leave it til you're ready to do that..

To get it off, yo might try squeezing the brake shoes inward, but if the adjuster is stuck, it will be difficult to do.

I wish it was the ebrake.. but it's not. As I said, the adjuster is rather seized!

if the adjuster is frozen.pull the drums out as far as you can.so you can see the adjuster hammer and chisel it.you know how it got the two brake shoes.
just put the chisel on it by the ears thats holding shoes and hammer it up.
it should be a cap.it will knock it off and drop down in your hands.then you can squeeze the shoes together to get those drums off.
note just hit the adjuster.good luck
