I had to use a big slide hammer the first time, after that I use the torch
and heat the drum, once it expands it gets loose, sometimes they fall off
easy, amazing what a little heat can do

around salt lake city, utah  Im really starting to hate the snow now. I never grew up with it really on the oregon coast which had it last at the longest a couple days maybe then I movedto utah 2 years ago and found out it snows forever.

Yeah, it's not unusual to get snow up in the higher elevations near the mountains in the spring. I used to live in Colorado, on the front range and we loved it when it snowed in the spring, skiing in shorts! It'll stop soon enough.

Where the heck are you that it's still snowing? Oh, and a slide hammer is a good tool to own if you plan on building up your tool set. Harbor Frieght has them pretty cheap.

that sounds like a great idea to put the tire back on and hit it thank you.

Just be careful, because you usually have to be under the vehicle a little bit to get into position to hit the tire.....so just pay attention that the vehicle doesn't fall off the blocks or jackstands.
If you have an old wheel around, that works even better.....you don't get the "bounce" like you do when you hit the tire....but hitting a wheel with a hammer can bend it....that is why I said old wheel.

After you take the 4 center nuts and washers off, put the tire and wheel back on the drum, then take a big hammer and smack the backside of the tire, spin the tire 180* and smack it again.....keep doing this and the drum should eventually pop off.
