I have a 3000 late style I am trying to get the brake drum off of. I have heated it and hit it and it does not want to move. Am I missing something or is it just stuck from being on so long?
thanks
Dale

Since you don't offer the information the questions have to be asked. Did you back the adjusters all the way off? Does the drum rotate freely with no contact with the shoes? Does the drum move at all? If it won't move at all not even wiggle a little you need to use the hammer some more. It can also be rusted on around the studs in which case penetrating oil is needed along with the hammer. If it pulls off a little way a ridge on the back edge can be getting hung up on the shoes, necessitating backing the adjuster off more.

Sometimes there will be two countersunk screws holding the drum onto the axle shaft flange. These are placed there to keep the brake drum from falling off when you want to remove only the tire. Assuming you have those out, more heat and more beat is about the only solution. If you have access to a large puller, you can also put a small amount of tension on it with that, but you can't go too crazy with it because you'll crack the drum if you pull too hard.

I don't know what you're using for heat, but a torch with a rosebud tip might be what it takes to get the job done.

My son's 3500 was the same. We heated, beat, built a puller but no go. He bought new drums & took a 10 lb sledge trying to break the old ones off. Both popped off w/out breaking.
