i've got one. it doesn't go into much detail about removing the brake drums and i've taken a shot at it and couldn't get it off.

only problem i had was getting the actual drum off. had to beat the living hell outta it to get it off but the actual brake shoe assembly wasn't that hard to replace, just the usual annoying springs and my driver's side wheel cylinder was shot to hell. i was just wondering if i was doing something wrong when i was taking off the drum because it wasnt a walk in the park.
