Brakes problem

my right front brake drum is very tight and hard to take off to get to the brake shoes, can someone tell me how to get the drum off is there a special drum puller?

If you haven't fixed your problem yet, there are 2 brake cylinders per wheel, use a flathead screw driver and loosen the adjusters on the back of the hub. On my cruiser there were two screws holding the drum on on the outside (lug side) of my drum.
