Thanks for your response.
A small screwdriver bends and then slips of the sprocket without a budge of the adjustment.
I tried to heat the drum with a plumbers torch to expand the drum and free the adjuster, but the drum is huge (a P30 chassis).
With the dual wheels off the ground, I tried to spin the wheels, with the engine to heat the drum, this just torqued the vehicle.
I'm thinking I may have to cut a bigger hole in the backplate to enable more torque on the sprocket.
Any other ideas?

Maybe good idea other option is big puller and rip shoes springs hold downs off.

The solution was to use a screwdriver as a chisel and tap the sprocket.
