you will ned to remove the back tires and then remove the rear drums, there may be two small holes that bolt screw int the bolt size 8mmx1.25. you want them to be about an inch long, just thread them and keep tighting them and the drum should come off if the shoes are less 1/8 inch thick they need to be replaced. remove the springs PAY ATTENTION how they come off, and reinstall
