Well, make sure the satr adjuster has the shoes all the way in by turning the star adjuster. It is located in the drum and can be accessed through the back plate and usually has a rubber plug in the access hole. Use a flat blade screwdriver to turn. If a hammer does not work, then you will have to pull the drum and that does not guarantee that there will not be some damage. However if there is it will be to brake shoes more thna likely and you are replacing them. Although other stuff can break. On the drum you will find a threaded hole. Find a bolt that threads into the hole and is long enough to reach the back plate and then a couple of inches longer. Turn it in and slowly tighten it. It will pull the drumm off by pressing it off the back plate.
