I am rebuilding a  fox body mustang rear end.  The drums were stuck, the brake shoes were pushed right up against the drum, or whatever.  I soaked, smacked with multiple hammers, beat it with a 2 x 4.  Nothing. Got out the torch, nothing.   I ponied up ~$30 for a puller on amazon.  Worked like a champ.  The shoes are so worn the rivets are showing.  

I always tell my kids to use the right tool for the right job.  I know the internet told me to smack it with hammers, but is that really the right tool?

Anyway, brake drum puller?  I'm a believer.

Got any pictures? I can't remember the last time I've seen one.

There's also a hydraulic version for when they're really stuck.

I have the hydraulic version. It's no joke.
