A rubber hammer is your first mistake. Use a four pound steel hammer. But, before you do that back the adjuster off all the way. On the backing plate there is a black rubber plug. Use a flat blade screwdriver to pop it out, then with the same screwdriver turn the adjuster wheel all the way down. Then hit the drum with the hammer until it shocks free from the wheel bearing flange.
