1983 Prelude drum brake issues

I am trying to replace the wheel cylinder inside my rear drum brakes on my Prelude, and I cannot get the drum off for the life of me. Anybody know the miracle touch that will allow me to get these off? I have the brake released and I still have had no luck. If anybosy knows please fill me in so I can get to driving my car!

Hmm, assuming it's not the bearing type (I have no idea) carefully wack it with a hammer around the hub area without hitting the studs until it breaks free. Just be careful that when trying to pull it off as it may have a rust ridge around the drum or it will pull the assembly apart if your not careful. You can also spray some pb blaster around the hub and let it sit for a bit to let it soak in. What state are you in?

The drums are the wheel-bearing containing type. You have to pull the dust cover off and take out the cotter pin and wheel nut, then the drum will come off...with all the wheel bearings...

Re: 1983 Prelude drum brake issues

Yeah I just went retarded because it had been about 10 years since I has messed around with drum brakes. I left the nut on which I realized after 4 hours of knocking the fire out of it with a 3 lb. sledge. I guess the silver lining was that the drum came off like it was a brand new vehicle. Still kicking myself over the time I wasted, but it is slightly funny.
