Default \'63 cj5 rear brake drum removal

Hello folks,
new user here. I have a 1963 cj5 pretty much original. I wanted to remove the rear brake drums to check/replace shoes etc. I removed the axle nut but the axle shaft is keyed to the drum. How do you get the drum off? There is not enough end play to wiggle it off and i don't see how i can get a puller on it. Any suggestions? Thanks,
Eastex56

The Drum is probably fuesd with the hub, you probably have to try adn tap it off or use a slide hammer on the studs and yank it off. for more hlep goto www.earlycj5.com and goto the forums, more help over there for the older jeeps [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Those are probably the same drums used in Jeepsters, and that means there is a star washer that "locks" the drums on. Go to the Jeepster BBS and search there, you'll get great help. You going to have to bang on them really hard!

This link explains how to remove the drum:

This link shows you what the puller looks like and how it works:

My Studebaker has a tapered rear Dana 44 axle, so I have to use the same tool. Good Luck!
