Now I realize I can't get it back on because of the bolts on the flange next to the rear brake. I've seen an exploaded view of the brake but still can't figure out how to take it appart.
Remove left rear wheel and hub,axle tube should slide off, then depending on how much dirt and grit is in the brakes,the drum should be able to be tapped off after all tension is released from brake cable.The bolts you are referring to are on the drum backing plate. After drum is off you can see what neeeds to be done. Good luck OPT
